Ex­pan­sive, anx­i­ety-rid­den post-hardcore from Bri­tish debu­tantes

Worry is an apt ti­tle for this de­but from Can­vas, who meld thun­der­ing hardcore with sear­ing post-rock at­mo­spher­ics. the Bed­ford­shire five-piece have tapped into the bleak men­tal­ity of a heav­ily bur­dened mind, per­form­ing an emo­tion­ally charged lyri­cal post-mortem on para­noia and nag­ging ten­sions. If opener Stay A While per­fectly cap­tures that quiet mo­ment when you try to sleep but the mind just won’t switch off, then the panic-stricken Low is the equiv­a­lent of wak­ing up from a night­mare drenched in cold sweat. ‘Trapped in my mind with my thoughts for com­pany,’ roars ricky Clarke, a man who sounds like he’s try­ing to out­run him­self on The Death Of Us. ‘I want to de­cay, for­get my name.’ From start to fin­ish,

Worry is an un­com­fort­able piece of in­tro­spec­tion that sounds knotty, des­per­ate and wired with anx­i­ety. FOR FANS OF: PELICAN, RUS­SIAN CIR­CLES, BE­ING AS AN OCEAN
