Here’s a new Four Door track, which will sound familiar to anyone who has seen the Sydney duo perform over the last six months or so. ‘Applications’ isn’t as austere as the material on Four Door’s great Nihilistic Orbs 12 inch from last year, but it’s still very strange. Especially nice are the aluminium-coloured synth washes that punctuate the start of every verse. There’s a very strong latter-day Severed Heads vibe on this one, with the lighter shaded tones sounding oddly foreboding, rather than bright.
Four Door will play Melbourne at Boney next Saturday night (the 17th) with Lace Curtain, Lucy Cliche and Freejack.
