7 / 10
Hailing from Sheffield and London respectively, and with one album each to their name, Nai Harvest and Playlounge are energetic, fast-rising indie/punk duos. They've toured the UK together, and are now collaborating on 'Flower', a four-song EP pressed on flower-shaped coloured vinyl. Nai Harvest's 'Buttercups' weds dreamy shoegaze guitar to burly, Smashing Pumpkins-y rumbling bass, inspired by an early '90s they're far too young to remember, before Playlounge's 'Hand Clap Cinema' bundles together No Age guitar noise and drawn-out post-rock. Both bands also cover each other: NH clatter brusquely through Playlounge's 'Sweet Tooth' and PL give their chums' 2013 track 'Floor' an extra coat of Dinosaur Jr paint.
