“Nightmare” mixes post-punk and fuzz for a highly infectious coldwave sound. It’s a bit odd, coming from Seattle. The fuzz seeps into everything, the harmony vocals, the percussion, all stemming from the guitar. Grave Babies maintain the nonchalant-ness of their chosen genre, yet there’s something oddly upbeat and positive about “Nightmare”.
The song is off Grave Babies’ new EP. It’s called Gothdammit, and given the chill in their sound, that name fits pretty well. You’ll find Gothdammit on Hardly Art come mid April.
