Record of the Day - 03/30/2022
A Place To Bury Strangers create a gloomy, brooding, intense atmosphere on their new album “See Through You” - our Record of the Day. It’s a wild ride through post-punk, new wave, noise rock and industrial, all woven together into a cohesive whole but never polished. As noisy and abrasive it gets at times, frontman Oliver Ackermann manages to make each song catchy with its carefully constructed, catchy vocal melodies. There are so many layers of sound, so many departures into different territories that each repeat listen reveals new details and sucks you in further into what feels like a wild rave gone really dark.
