Gouge Away - Demo 2013
The distinguishing characteristic here seems to be how the guitars are working. One guitar seems to focus on raging out the standard three or four chords, while the other is always experimenting with a noisier, lead part. It creates a nice, consistent mix that keeps the verse/chorus format interesting and fresh.
The recording has a nice, bright sound which seems to emphasize the urgency even more. There's a tasteful flanger effect on the guitar that doesn't distract the listener, but actually seems to work well. Trebly, sparkling bass tone holds up the back end adding more dimension to the overall sound.
Have a listen here.
