  • Pyyramids - 'Invisible Scream' EP
8 / 10
Drea Smith’s effortlessly narcotic vocal makes everything she sings sound like she’s casting a spell. And despite Pyyramids’ slightly iffy pedigree (the other half of the duo, Tim Nordwind, plays bass for novelty video types OK Go), this is a thoroughly classy EP. The title track is all introverted sadness offset by dark-hearted distortion worthy of The Kills, while ‘Everything Leads Back To You’ ups the electronic element. ‘Better Than Before’ pits slow-building pianos against a kind of desperate hopefulness, before a thrashing live cover of PJ Harvey’s ‘Rid Of Me’ ends the record with some serious chutzpah.
