“Beautiful weather today, Beautiful weather today…” Tim Darcy anxiously sing-talks repeatedly over noisy guitar, droning keyboards and a loosely locked bass and drum groove. His dramatic delivery urges the reexamination and exploration of the trite and mundane situations and interactions of daily life. There is a certain beauty just to being alive, and Ought make it their mission to find it through raw rock n’ roll that veers seamlessly between upbeat post-punk, meditative feedback drones, dramatic ballads, and cathartic guitar freak outs.
Recommended for fans of post-punk that blends the moodiness of Joy Division, Iceage, and Television with the experimentation and noisiness of This Heat and No Wave.
