1. Friendships – ‘Pedal To The Metal’
This Melbourne audiovisual duo have always had the ambition, but now I think they’ve sound their sound. The turning point must’ve been after their last single ‘When I Feel Like Killing, I Murder‘, received a lot of positive feedback. Taking the dark industrial sounds of ’90s acts such as Nine Inch Nails and The Prodigy and filtering them through modern electronic production techniques of say ‘Holly Herndon‘. ‘Pedal To The Metal‘ is back dropped by a soothing keyboard, but in the foreground the listener is drowning under a constant crashing of ruthless sonic waves. Friendships have momentum on their side before heading over to New York next month for CMJ.
