Shout out to everyone who has taken time to listen and review the new record. Here are a few we’ve seen since Friday.
” Bottom line, “Please, Electric Move Slow” is an intriguing album. Recommended to all heavy music lovers no matter labelling. ” – Metal Addicts
“Burial Party borders on so many closely related subgenres, I wouldn’t dare try to straight-forward label them. In fact, you really shouldn’t judge something like this strictly by the genre when going into it. However, for those curious: you’ll get a lot of punk, a bit of hardcore, and some pop sprinkled here and there. ” –Direnotes Webzine
” Each track has something just a little different to ensure they can stand alone as well as part of this EP. Be it some pretty huge sounding riffs (Black Stripe), a more melodic element that switches to almost-hardcore level of fury (Crisis Actor), catchy dissonance (Digital Green Boots) or something that fits it all (Soft Chains). ” – Games, Brains, and a Headbanging Life
” Think of the reliability of AmRep and Touch And Go Records, and the feeling of unbridled exhilaration you get when you crank up the aforementioned bands/albums. You’ll get that with Please, Electric Move Slow, as well. ” – Rebel Extravaganza
“Vier Songs in elf Minuten lassen keine Zeit zum Luft holen, sondern prügeln mit manischer Energie durch die Landschaft. Das eröffnende „Black Stripe“ erinnert stellenweise sogar an At The Drive-In, ohne sich auch nur im Geringsten an die Post-Hardcore-Veteranen anzubiedern. Furiose Energie, heisere Schreie und wuchtige Riff-Kaskaden fahren durch das Gebälk.” – Demonic Nights
Our friends at Nine Circles talked with Dan about the band, the record, what metal he’s listening to, and had this to say about “Please Electric Move Slow”
“The fact that Fugazi, Converge and Refused were catharsis to Burial Party’s Dan Kinnaley isn’t lost on upcoming debut EP Please, Electric Move Slow. It’s loose yet chaotic, dissonant yet bears melodic fruit, noisey of the old AMRep ilk while playing with pop-punk lightheartedness. Basically, a ton of stuff packed into four tracks that’ll get you up, moving and singing along after a couple of spins…”
The fine folks at Alternative Control asked us about some of our favorite books, movies, and video games and then they plugged “Please, Electric Move Slow” for which we’re grateful. I think we covered all of the bases; chainsaw wielding madmen, a b-grade Japanese Twin Peaks, Rollins, and more. Read the whole interview here.
“Please, Electric Move Slow is out now, and available for purchase on Bandcamp. You can also stream the record on all of your favorite streaming platforms including Spotify, Google Play, Apple Music, and more.
