“OUT IN JUNE
Rarely does an unsolicited emailing of tracks from Europe even raise an eyebrow but No Accent and Pick A Line really knocked us over. Expertly tight catchy drumming, cold as ice monotone pitch perfect post-punk vocals and a rhythm section that would make James Brown mush-mouthier with jealousy. Sorta sounds like “Mesh & Lace” MODERN ENGLISH playing CRISIS covers but with smarter lyrics. We heard a rumor that DIÄT formed with the sole (and lofty) purpose of playing with TOTAL CONTROL in Berlin, where they’re from. I could believe the story since 2/3 of the band are actually Australian but I choose not to because the songs are too good to be so casual about. This band will do great things starting now.
ILR is proud to debut this power trio to the world.
Review in Maximum Rock and Roll May 2012 :
“BLANK PAGES -”Unseen” EP
This band is from Berlin but if you told me they were from Milwaukee, I would believe you. They play crisp, clear, melodic, thoughtful punk along the lines of RED DONS and the OBSERVERS. There’s something about it that reminds me of a more punk SMOKING POPES as well, which is not a bad thing. Bands like these can be a dime in a dozen, but BLANK PAGES gives it something extra and stands out from the pack. Maybe it’s their knack for a pop hook, their superior songwriting skills or the badass drum fills (I’m a drummer – I live for these things). I don’t know. What I do know is that there are four songs on here and they all fuckin’ rule. Get it. (GH)
