Spokenest - We M●ve
Review by Brayden Bagnall
Genre/s: Punk, Noise Rock, Garage Rock
For Fans Of: Eddy Current Suppression Ring, Wavves, Helta Skelta, God Equals Genocide
Spokenest are a two piece 'off-kilter punk'. They also happen to be a husband and wife. Aw cute.
'We M●ve' is the duo's debut EP, and while it is off-kilter, it has plenty of roguish charm and pop sensibility to go around. The twangy, angular guitar lines on We M●ve owe a lot to the likes of noise rock and surf rock, but also retain a catchy, three chord punk quality that drive the songs forward. Similarly, the drums have a steady energetic drive that are just as unpredictable as the guitar. It's the vocal dynamic between both members that really makes Spokenest though, with both members sporting raw, honest delivery - whether they're shouting, speaking or singing their lyrics.
If you fancy listening to something a bit more lighthearted than the usual stuff I post on here, I'd definitely recommend We M●ve - it's definitely a noisy album, but it's a much loftier and friendly affair than your average noise rock/punk album.
