POS 03 : Kias Fansuri / Narwhal / Pete the Pirate Squid / Teeth of Mammals 10"

Four way split transcending continents.

Narwhal (London, England) do emo that wouldn't have been out of place in the Ebulition distro during the early nineties. Marching drums, waltzing guitars and messy vocals. Sharing their side is Teeth of Mammals (Reading, PA USA) who play loud riffy 70s rock that soon swirls into a mire of dark effect ridden emo not unlike The Appleseed Cast or Cursive. On the other side Pete the Pirate Squid (Germany/Sweden) examine the quirkier, indie rock sound of emo throwing up comparisons to Engine Down, Rainer Maria, Q and Not U etc. Finally finishing everything off Kias Fansuri (Malaysia) include ex members of Utarid playing frantic yet tempered Witching Hour-esque screamo.
