THE GUILT is a two-piece punk-rock discharge from Helsingborg, near Malmö, Sweden with Tobias Kastberg [guitars and rhythms] and Emma [vocals].
If you can imagine that Roxette had been dragged, hacked, hauled, threshed and de-chaffed in a mechanized threshing machine, this is is what they probably would have ended-up sounding like.
Tomorrow, the 5th of May 2017 THE GUILT release their debut self-titled album on Heptown records.
The album begins with the ferocious curse and unobscured bitchiness of “Mess at a Birthday Party.” This is brilliantly arrogant and an über-fantastic slap menagerie.
“Hate, Hate, Hate” is deep and squelchy. Featuring a low-punch bass, rock-n-roll rhythms, quick betrayer riffs and propellant vocals.
This song sounds like “Caught out There” [Kelis] covered by the B-52’s after a particularly frenetic drug orgy.
“Anomalys” [shared below] is the first single from the debut album “THE GUILT” with a cross-cut buzz, chunks of abrasive sound and carbide vocals. It’s a super-heated head-rush of dizzy pressure.
A feverish combination of dance melodies and punked-out alienation.
