Written and recorded at Tobin’s own Ice Cream Audio in Brooklyn, New York in just nine days, the EP serves as an honest, simple name for a simple, honest record. Commended for dishing up six “massive, post-hardcore jewels, with nice clean and melodic vocals, dissonant guitar work, a fantastic rhythm section and quality song writing,” in an early review by Echoesanddust.com, 9 Days is angular, discordant, rhythmic and driving, an emotional outpouring of noisy discontent. Anyone with a deep record collection will understand that STRANGELIGHT aren’t trying to reinvent the wheel, just taking the dust jackets off the old classics and melting the vinyl down for fun.
In honor of its systematic takeover next week, Alternative Press is currently streaming “Split and Divide” at THIS LOCATION. Check it out. Go now. Do it.
