‘Ongoing Dispute’ isn’t just the strongest material the band has released to date, but is filled with progress, lust and learning.

With this record I hear great similarities to a stronger I would towards the shoes gaze and post punk scene of the 70s ( joy division being an influence)– also gathering great influences from or gothic (the cure influence) and indie based (the strokes as an influence)music scenes. But this album really took a few lessons to break ... read more
