Guineafowl, Hello Anxiety EP Review


'In Our Circles' opens with a spacey echoing guitar intro over a stomping bass drum pound before drums and a chugging bass line kick in part way through this opening track who's lyrics entitle the Sydney-based collectives' EP. Guineafowl's sound is refreshingly distinctive and individual though there are flavours of Arcade Fire, even of U2 and perhaps of the multi-part vocals of Bombay Bicycle Club; the blend is relatively strong with a distinctive catchy melody and confident power from the off.

The synth opening of 'Little Fingers' sounds akin to the introductory seconds of Human League's 'Together In Electric Dreams' but the track soon stomps into an indie strut with an infectious beat.

'Botanist' then opens with quite a long instrumental introduction which sounds their trademark spacey guitars over synth beats; the vocals then join to follow the same melody as the electric guitar.
