Blind Girls - Efflorescence

I don't hear about too many bands from Australia so I was happy to find out about Blind Girls. From start to finish I really like these 7 songs which put forth something akin to a more aggressive version of Funeral Diner or Coma Regalia.  The guitar and bass are bright and mid gain, but you can hear a heavy handed dig into the strings which adds more attack and dirtiness into the music.  This is capitalized on by some intense vocal work and frantic drumming.

The band seems to have a knack for songwriting as each track here flows really well.  The dynamics are well placed, giving you small spaces of quiet among the chaos.  There's a melodic element behind the whole thing, keeping a very introspective sound even when things are moving at high speeds.
