Three years on from the release of her acclaimed SMACKWAVE EP, Spike Fuck returns to the limelight with a delicate off-cut from the SMACKWAVE sessions. ‘Body By Crystal’ is a sorrowful insight back to Spike’s times of addiction – an unflinching tale coloured in blueish hues, boasting love-bruised guitar peals and sighs tinged with palpable sadness.
After a strong series of creature-feature singles, Dr. Sure’s Unusual Practice brings the same atmosphere of comic dread to its debut album. But while there are moments of political ire, the band is more notable for hanging back and snidely deconstructing the world at a self-imposed remove.
