Pettersson / Det Är Därför Vi Bygger Städer 7"
Vienna meets Stockholm, as Pettersson teams up with Det är därför vi bygger städer to spoil us with one hell of a split record.
In customary style, Pettersson – who were able to leave a remaining
impression with their 2016 debut, Rift & Seam – are leading off the
split with the three minute, post-rock influenced screamo epos, Sensory
Deprivation > Motion Sickness. Slowly Rising, the song is
characterized by the ability of Adrian, Dominik and Tobias not to
exaggerate, but to make clever use of post-rock riffs, wrapping
Dominik’s breathtaking vocals into a well-composed sound garment.
Hereinafter, Det är därför vi bigger städer comes up with their part of
the split, shifting the focus to a edgier sound, sticking a bit closer
to the roots of the genre. On Reverse Polarity, the Swedes offer an
intense mix of versatile guitar-playing and wild drumming, changing the
pace quite a lot.
