Pleasure Symbols: Pleasure Symbols

This Brisbane doom-gaze duo has been brewing in the shadows for a while now, cultivating a Californian neon sound perfect for standing around while Nicolas Winding Refn throws stones at a moonlit lake. Their debut EP is a sparsely constructed-yet-dank and almost cloying thing, mixing precisely programmed beats, wistful synth and vocals that feel like they haunt the halls an ’80s high school. For fans of the group, it’s a pity that two of the four tracks on offer have been lingering online for year or so, but overall it’s still a great, gloomy 17 minutes.
