HOOK­WORMS - ‘NEG­A­TIVE SPACE’

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - THE TAKE CRITICS’ CHOICE -

What do you get if you cross the DNA of alt-rock­ers At-The-Drive-In with the elec­tronic pop of Pas­sion Pit? Some­thing quite close to the sound that the Leeds five-piece Hook­worms have ar­rived at on their new al­bum Mi­croshift. Neg­a­tive Space is the first seven min­utes of the record, an ex­pan­sive an­themic open­ing salvo that sounds like it was con­structed in James Mur­phy’s stu­dio. An ab­so­lute ear­worm. Catch them at For­bid­den Fruit. NIALL BYRNE
