Man, this is good. Energetic, punchy and very anthemic, Seven Feet Four’s barbed blood-pumping rawk is a blessing straight from Sweden which, let’s face it, you can always rely on for top-notch progressive post-hardcore. More in tune with the angular melodies of 'The Argument'-era Fugazi than the crazy spaghetti strums of The Blood Brothers, Seven Feet Four surf through waves of jagged off-the-hook rhythms that somehow remain in sync whilst a well of catchy melodies lurk underneath.
Indeed, a riotous sing-along frenzy like _‘The Observer’ _is strong enough to rival Fugazi, Modest Mouse *or even *Division of Laura Lee’s finest moments while their unwieldy assault remains all the more, erm, progressive. It burns with a classic mentality whilst staying vitally fresh, but then that could just be the mastering work from the legendary Pelle Henriccson (Refused, Fireside etc) and the fact that anything he touches turns to gold!
Surging, uplifting and head-noddingly good, Seven Feet Four demand your attention.
