The Angel Makers – “Kill the World”


The haunting “Kill the World” is the opening track off the sam and sara EP, the newest release from The Angel Makers, the duo from Colchester, England who impressed last year with their eponymous debut full-length. The act’s sound was impressive then, though has taken a step forward here in further refining influences steeped in ’60s psych-pop and ’90s shoegaze. However, whereas the previous release felt more like an ode to such inspirations, this EP feels very idiosyncratic. Shoshy’s haunting croon accompanies a ghostly guitar crawl and ominous bass line, remaining tranquil within the dark depths. This track, and several others on the EP, send chills up my spine — quite enjoyably.
