Album Review: Munch Munch, 'Double Visions' (Upset The Rhythm)

Bold new noise from the Bristol quartet

Album Review: Munch Munch, 'Double Visions' (Upset The Rhythm)

7 / 10 Sleep is a cruel mistress. While it’s off playing hooky with deeper snoozers, most of us whimper and contort under duvets. Not Bristolian thrash-pop quartet Munch Munch, however, who wrote much of their batshit-crazy debut while mired in self-induced late-night lucubrations. Unsurprisingly, it’s as odd as a dream, a left-brain noise freakout where Klaxons intone ritualistic curses ’pon your damned soul, Man Man’s Honus Honus uses your teeth for organ keys and Islet-authored A Brief History Of Time. Their reluctance to commit to choruses or hooks wears a little, but there’s promise in spades; no cause for further sleepless nights, anyway.
