VICIOUS PLEASURE (COOKING VINYL AUSTRALIA) KKKK EMOTIONAL ANTHEMS FROM SYDNEY POST-HARDCORE TYPES
■ IT’S A tricky business, being in an emo band in 2018.With the genre’s lyrical themes and musical palette being so thoroughly explored at this point, there’s a danger of simply retreading ground that’s been trampled all over by a horde of sensitive types before you. Sydney blokes Endless Heights have deftly sidestepped this potential pitfall on their second album, by developing a distinct personality and an impressively luxuriant sonic sensibility all of their own. Single Come A Little Closer exemplifies this angle with its considered approach, vocalist Joel Martorana delivering the chorus in a curious but effective downplayed manner, while the band shimmers seductively around him.an album this strong will surely see Endless Heights expand their horizons far beyond their Australian homeland.
