PLUS: SCHNARFF SCHNARFF NICE N SLEAZY, GLASGOW. 15.02.17 KKKKK SCANDINAVIAN PUNK ROCK’S BRIGHTEST LIGHTS ACCELERATE THEIR DAZZLING ASCENT ■ “OH WOW,” gasps one pleasantly-shocked punter, forgetting her indoor-voice a couple of songs in tonight.“i think I’ve got a brand new girl-crush!” By the looks of the other faces crammed into this Glaswegian bunker, she’s not alone. Surprise, see, is still on Sløtface’s side.a time is coming when having seen Haley Shea leading the Stavanger punks in a subterranean space as confined as Nice N Sleazy will be something to brag about. Right now, however, they’re still winning fans one sing-along at a time. Brilliantly/terribly-titled openers Schnarff Schnarff win plenty of their own tonight, too. Sporting some rough-edges amongst their Deftones-touched texture and grungy guitars, they’re great, but they’re still well behind the hotter-than-the-sun headliners.“everybody needs to get much closer to the stage!” demands Haley as Sløtface arrive, gaining momentum with a wicked grin. Sparking with bright-eyed intelligence and raw activist attitude, the cool, woolly-sweatered frontwoman knows that nights like these are numbered.accordingly, the fizzing melodies of Take Me Dancing and Try Not To Freak Out pop with seize-the-moment urgency. Bright Lights ebbs with entrancing indie-rock sensuality. Empire Records bounces with all the defiant outsider-cool of its 1995 cinematic namesake. Songs off their upcoming debut LP sound even better, with intimidatingsounding six-stringer Tor-arne Vikingstad exchanging propellant riffage for audience-members’ Buckfastcider cocktails, while Halvard Skeie Wiencke and Lasse Lokøy keep the rhythm-section bouncier than a rubber kangaroo. Blazing-out with established anthems Sponge State and Shave My Head, though, the hoarse-throats and thumped-feet leave little doubt: we’re watching Scandi-superstars-in-waiting.
