'Housewives’ sound (or noise) is indebted to the scratch and scrawl of No Wave and Post Punk. Melody is often tossed aside in favour of clanging dissonance and sharp rhythmic turns. This Heat’s Charles Hayward noted 'a sort of monochromatic surliness slowly warms up to a barely controlled anger, hypnotic and building from the simplest elements' in Housewives’ sound. The influence of the likes of Luigi Russolo, Steve Reich and Phillip Glass can also be found within the space and noise of the group’s DNA. Upset The Rhythm put it best: 'their songs creep out of chaos into urgent bursts of energy and loud focus.'

I wish i had an empty ballroom or music hall to listen to this in. I love the reoccuring Heartache and the big brass sounds and distortion. It feels so terrifying. My heart goes out to those suffering from dementia or knows anyone whos suffering. discount-teeth
