Reviewed by Alex Deller on Feb 2, 2019
'Nephew Melting' opens with a cute, pushy guitar part and a positively bouncy bassline that leads you to think you might be getting a Knack b-side for the first few seconds or so. This being Violence Creeps it's not long before things spider sideways and the snark begins, with an awkward crumpling of sound and vocals decrying some douchey band or other for their crap attitude and try-hard antics. 'Ford Go Bikes' follows, starting with some half-hearted handclaps before lurching into a looming, lip-curled tale of insidious urban gentrification that's powered by nasty guitar jabs and a weird, winding bassline. Both tracks are great, of course, leaving a strange, bitter, No Trend-ish aftertaste that's utterly gross but also bizarrely moreish.
