[EP] Mammal Club – THE AU EP (w/ “Otter” & “Hang”)

well i don’t think we’re ever gonna know

♫ Mammal Club – Otter

Keep your eye on Mammal Club. Seriously. If these guys aren’t huge by new years then there is no justice in the world. I wish I could say they were my find but it was Brighton’s The Recommender that tipped me off to these guys from Newcastle who are currently reigning over my iTunes with an iron fist of an EP. “Otter” kicks off the 4 tracks and stops me in my tracks every time I hear it. It’s that perfect blend of off kilter rhythms and soaring hooks that create such fantastic tension.The whole song oscillates between pressure and release. It’s almost like sex I guess. Perhaps that’s why I like it. Anyway, The Au EP continues with the galloping “Out Of The Playground” before leading into the second show-stopper, “Hang.” It’s all right angles and explosive timing but somehow ends up sliding between the ears and nestling right in. Brilliant. Ok, stop listening to me blather on and support these guys and the Au EP with a stream and a purchase after the jump.
