Considering the thoroughbred talent of Shepparton Airplane – the four-piece comprises former and/or current members of The Peep Tempel, Graveyard Train and Tankerville – it’s no shock the band’s second album Almurta expands on their fantastically grubby, melodic punk sound.
These tracks flagellate with thick and raw guitars, hearty melodies, and an Idles-like licentiousness. Single No Prize is just the start; head for the beautiful harmonic rush of Rewind, and the sloping slap of Revenge.
Almurta is out now via Wing Sing/Redeye.
