You, Me and Ev­ery­thing In Be­tween (Greyscale)

You needn’t look far past song ti­tles such as Ego­pho­bia and High­fLIAR to know what Belle Haven was go­ing for on LP2—the Mel­bourne screamo troupe pull no punches on You, Me And Ev­ery­thing In Be­tween, drag­ging lis­ten­ers deep into their rab­bit hole with a dan­ger­ously tasty on­slaught of Sound­wave-era shred. Borne of a year plagued with death, de­pres­sion and a shit­storm or two be­hind the scenes, the record is in­stantly an­grier than any­thing Belle Haven have dropped in the past: thick and gristly bends build the al­lur­ingly messy Hol­ly­wood, for ex­am­ple, and Me is ef­fort­lessly har­row­ing with its dark twang and po­lar­is­ing yells. But amidst all the sonic gore, Ev­ery­thing’s first half shines with dy­namic cho­ruses and gi­ant chant-along cues, front­man David De La Hoz mar­ry­ing melody with melo­drama to a sound­track of bit­ter chugs and glassy keys. M.D.
