BansheeVa - Bansheeva
Space is the place on ' Sleep When Im Dead' and by the album closer 'Fuck You...', the band are wading through the fiery depths of hell.
Largely instrumental, when the band do decide to add
vocals it is done with economy. 'Space Invader' has a repeated three
line chant ("You're a space invader/ Say what?/ Get out of my
face) and 'Fuck You..." has only the title phrase howled through
a bucket load of fuzz.
'Sleep When Im Dead' is the exception to this, with many verses that read like poetry ("snowed in beneath the sheets/ hung on the cusp of sleep") and work well with the songs relaxed groove.
This is a fine opening shot from Bansheeva, hopefully the first of many.
