Housewives – HousewivesPosted: January 18, 2014
If one was to guess the looks and the overall mood of a certain city or town where a band come from from their sound, then guessing by the nihilistic, atonal sound of the Brighton based band Housewives, this seaside town must be one hell of a depressing place to live in, consumed by fear and urban decay, kinda like New York City in the 1970’s and 1980’s, at the peak of its no wave period. And certainly, Housewives borrow a lot from the harsh traditions of the no wave genre, filling their hard-hitting tracks with avant-garde leanings and post-punk energy, propelled forward by mathematic rhythms and razor-sharp guitar notes, fuelled by anger and paranoia. A must-have for fans of both DNA, No New York comp and This Heat. Highly recommended!
