"Arriving just in time to grab a beer before Sunderbans take to the stage, admirably performing on borrowed instruments (their’s were stolen after a show the previous Tuesday). Kicking out an aggressive set of songs with big, bold basslines, menacingly underplayed guitars and faintly hypnotic drums. Oddly reminiscent of moody openings, a la Black Flag’s “My War” but with great control and restraint on the rage front, alongside lacings of melody, melancholy and folk influences. A weird combination, but pulled of with great aplomb and dedications to the “C**ts who stole our instruments” by a trio destined for greater things than playing to ten unappreciative people early on in Hoxton."
