Masses from Melbourne, Australia have released their debut LP and are planning a North American tour in support of their release. The LP is a cooperative release by both Mass Media Records and Lost in Fog Records in Australia. Both labels are run by women which is a huge undertaking in and of itself. Lost in Fog is ran by Tessa who also slays in Masses! So like support us!
The album maintains the bands anxious goth post-punk style from earlier releases, this time utilizing more duel vocals from both guitarist James and synth player Nellie. MOLOCH explores both the driving anarcho sounds and politically motivated themes reminiscent of bands such as The Mob, whilst also delving into more emotive and dancey goth and post punk inspired tracks drawing from bands such as The Creatures and Lost Tribe. In my opinion if those two bands got married and had a baby it would be Masses. I’m a weirdo though, so you’ll have to listen for yourself…
