“The noisiest pop music on the planet” – Pitchfork
Austin, TX’s cult noise rock trio CHERUBS return with their new EP, SLO BLO 4 FRNZ & SXY. A follow up to their critically acclaimed Immaculada High (2019), the new EP capitalizes on the musical frenzy and shining moments of the latest full length, resulting in another dose of the legendary band’s take on punk infused noise rock.
Lead track “A Pair of Pear Tarts” explodes out of the speakers – Kevin Whitley’s vocals are at the forefront once again, backed by absolutely raucous drumming and whirry, fuzzed out bass and guitars. “Lazy Snakes” continues this momentum; the trademark psychedelic qualities of CHERUBS heaviness are at the forefront as drums rinse and repeat as the song builds and builds. Elsewhere on the EP, Immaculada High standout “Sooey Pig” is converted into an acoustic anthem, giving the track new dynamics and heights.
