Following the release of their EP Three Hits via Fitlike Records late last year Lenin Death Mask have returned with a new video for the lead track from the EP 7/4 Boreline.
The video premiered on Punktastic but you can also watch now on the band’s YouTube page or via the embed below.
Combining elements of punk rock, post-punk, pop and the more challenging, complex technicalities of math-rock, Lenin Death Mask have produced an EP full of head-bopping dynamism that will have you coming back for more and more. Three Hits is impossibly charming with the band able to showcase their enviable ability to produce genre defying music with time changes galore executed with a technical aplomb. Having pulled on a wide range of influences from Hall and Oates to Minutemen, Lenin Death Mask have evolved a sound akin to the bastard child of Tera Melos having a fight with Maps & Atlases officiated by members of Hella. If that doesn’t sound intriguing, you must be dead inside.
The EP was recorded by Phil Booth at JT Soar in Nottingham and was mixed by Joe Caithness of Subsequent Mastering. The current line-up comprises Craig Scott (guitar/bass/vocals), Tom Gilbert (guitar/bass/vocals), Peter Taylor (guitar/vocals) and Thomas Emslie (drums) having originally been formed by Craig and Grant Pirie in 2012 with the aim of producing music that wasn’t bound by set formulas. This certainly shines through as joyful, uplifting music is juxtaposed by lyrical content that, at times, can be emotionally charged.
Three Hits is out now via Fitlike Records and available to buy via the band’s Bandcamp page.
