is firmly entrenched in the tradition of inventive, challenging punk but combines elements of experimental pop compositions and aggressive math-rock. The band visits from Nantes, France and understands that a song being intelligent and complex need not exclude it from having a raw, danceable energy. For their new album Recreation (2012), the band teamed up with John Congleton to produce their most significant work yet. Pushing the limits of their unusual line-up (drums, 2 guitars, percussion, vocals), the band has matured into a devastatingly efficient unit, with instruments, ideas and personalities bouncing off each other in an audible culture of creativity.
