While bands such as Peace and Swim Deep possess a doe-eyed psychedilc sense of nostalgia Bombers have always held a more twisted and daggered approach to their blend of post punk. Where as previous single Drawing had a doom laden snarl of Nick Cave and Joy Division with hints of No Wave, Forecast andThe Way You Think You Look hold more a minimal sense of nonchalance; declaring a sense of frustration, confusion and wry observations of bands like The Fall.
Not ones to be pigeonholed the dark undertones are still there but this time its stripped back with exasperated fury. They are still hitting the live circuit with relentless energy and it's the uncontrollable live force that's making their reputation spread across the UK.
