With albums such as this that hurtle along at 100 miles per hour and tear your eardrums to pieces, you do sometimes end up longing for a little peace to overcome the anarchy. Symmetry Lover, unlike other similar bands, do this perfectly. There are elements here that are almost ethereal.. or it certainly feels like it when the storm breaks and calm descends. I find it to be a marker of maturity in a band that doesn't shy away from finding that 'time-out' within their music. This echoes what some doom metal bands are doing when adding blackgaze elements to their music and it's amazing to hear within a punk album. Quite unique with the subtle and sparing way it's done. I even feel they could utilise it more. Symmetry Lover feel like they are a rival to Petrol Girls and whilst both lead their field.. I am feeling Symmetry Lover is perhaps that little more refined in how far along they are in terms of quality. Maybe. Somehow this all feels like the dawn of a new-punk era.
