T̶o̶n̶g̶u̶e̶ - demo (2012)

Ryan from Megan & Amelia/DEERS!/Matsuri, Andrew from Matsuri/Ten Thousand Leagues, Conrad from John Cota and Nik from Calculator are forming T̶o̶n̶g̶u̶e̶.

This is their first demo and they belong to the post-hardcore genre and are potentially my favorite discovery in this category since Ohana. They are the grandchildren of bands such as Hoover, Bitch Magnet, Slint, Four Hundred Years or Rodan.

It's quite (in)tense and screamo for a good part, but there are no useless noisy parts and sometimes they are slipping towards inventive quieter developments. It's not an easy listening but there are a lot of subtlety in their compositions which keeps you attentive. I have homeopathic needs for such type of music and they are filling these perfectly.
