An MF Exclusive Premiere: SPLURGE and Their ‘Mood Swings’.
SPLURGE, a word that conjures images of Bugsy Malone and bright colours exploding from the muzzle of a Tommy or ‘Splurge’ gun if you remember that classic. However, the word SPLURGE also has a more contemporary standing and that would be in the form of the two-piece riff laden discordant Hardcore Punk made via two organisms named Rob and Joe.
The band are preparing to release their next EP Mood Swings on the 21st May but that is a story for another time. Right now we are here for an oh so specific set of mood swings onset by discordant noise and a fresh distant branch of the Punk tree.
The eponymous track from this forthcoming abrasion was released today, exclusively on Musically Fresh and it was certainly well worth the now lack of hearing I now have to live with. Cheers gents.
‘This song was written after spending a large amount of time with someone who suffered from various mental health disorders. It is really good to talk about problems, because then people who worry can realise there is no problem. You are who you are.’
If you’ve heard any of the band’s other material then you’ll know that their Hardcore base is grounded but also enriched by a love of slow-groove and the gratuitous thud of Noise Rock. The words are blunt and the message is clear, the band are losing the plot and with these mood swings and highly probable guitar swings and projectile drumsticks you best heed this advice.
The band’s guitar tone is something standout and almost reminiscent of another band in a similar vein, the abstract ensemble that is Fucked Up.
SPLURGE leave you room to ponder with this initial swing to a darker inspiration in a track that was initially a simple intro to their live set, that went on to vacuum so much power it deserved its own story. A story that will have to keep us until the chronicle is finished on May 21st of this year down the M25 from London via Brighton.
