Into The Shroud

Self-styled dream-punks and shop favourites Flesh World land on Dark Entries, following their self-titled EP for LVEUM (2013, where does the time go?), a brace of 7"s and 2015's ripping The Wild Animals In My Life LP on Iron Lung.

Don't fret, they haven't reinvented themselves as synth-reliant darkwavers. No, the Flesh World sound is fundamentally unchanged in four years, thank god, a perfect teenbeat rush of punk and shoegaze-inflected indie-pop (any combination of those key words will work). But there's a newfound brawn and clarity to Into The Shroud: unlike its predecessors - would you like some music with your distortion? - this album sounds produced, not merely recorded, and mercifully they haven't thrown out the baby with the bathwater. The songs and playing aren't just good enough to bear their new glad rags, they absolutely merit them. Jess Scott's vocals, which on past efforts were buried way deep in the mix, are given the prominence they always deserved; like Scott Moore's bravura, What-Difference-Does-It-Make guitar parts, they sound brighter, more confident and death-disco-ready than ever: see especially the title track and the 'Problem In The Youth Bulge' (title of the year), both anthems in waiting. Love this band. Still darlings. Recommended!
