Label: Gofod Records Ltd
Released: 11th December 2015
Subversion grounds punk four-piece ESTRONS. Lead single ‘Make A Man’, from debut EP, ‘Whoever She Was…’ throws down the gauntlet and has brash vocal lines from Taliesyn Källström that hold a finger up to the patriarchy and lie atop scuzzy guitar lines.
The powerfully seductive melody on ‘Aliens’ removes the EP from sonic conflict before plunging straight back into ‘Ysbrydoli’ – it’s welsh for ‘inspired’, and is backed up with welsh lyrics throughout. This is not a band hung up on accessibility.
It’s refreshing to see a band wield their creative autonomy as freely as ESTRONS do. Jack Glasscock
