Hair Police - Mercurial Rites (2013)


The punk attitude is one that transcends genres. It's a state of mind that works its way into the thoughts of artists of all flags, showing itself through many different media. It manifests itself as a desire to stand out, and to declare a righteous "fuck you" to everyone who cares. Hair Police, while obviously noise makers and a long cry from "punk" music, bleed this attitude through their amplifiers and screamed vocals. Harsh, metallic drones and muffled clangs, sourced from lord-knows-what, create an almost terrifying atmosphere, devoid of any hope or warmth. Feedback and distorted shouts tunnel their way through the madness, but the album avoids devolving into a mush of indistinct hum. Each outburst of noise, whether it be the wail of a guitar or the screech of a synth, is a distinct sonic statement, declaring that Hair Police are putting everything in the forefront, and holding nothing back.
