The Murder Act – Polygon download

Experimental krautrock post punk band The Murder Act (London, UK) has added a new song for Soundcloud download entitled ‘Polygon’. Described as “Early Swans meets early Bad Seeds” the band have already released a highly respectable debut E.P. ‘Traum’ – available now from their bandcamp site at:

We took a listen to the ‘Polygon’ track and this is what we thought:

From a misty and tentative beginning grows a mucous filled chasm of despair. Thrumming and relentless tom-tom beats push out a gloomy pace as the morose vocals (almost spoken) hesitantly stew up an inexorable lather.  The song seems to be stepping tremulously towards a milky-light horizon. Enmeshed within the coils of barbed guitars and sparkling riffs are festering unanswered cries for help and miserable reasons for release. This song grabs your soul, and it won’t let go till you are sunk into the depths. — © Neil_Mach March 2012 —
