NYC Noise Rock newcomers: GHXST

NYC Noise Rock newcomers: GHXST

“Black Camaro,” the new single by Brooklyn self defined "Death Grunge" trio GHXST, immediately runs roughshod over our ears with a wave of muscular guitar blasts. Its power and pulse shares a sonic kinship with bands like A Place To Bury Strangers or perhaps even Helmet, with vocals reminiscent of the more controlled expressiveness of vocalists like Allison Mosshart of The Kills - but completely drenched in reverb. “Doomgirl” continues this mode, with a slithering groove and sexy come-hither-to-my-junkie vocal performance. “Shallow” stomps mid-tempo as the sensual vocals purr how “I love what you do, my baby.” Snaking slide guitar ride over a solid foundation of fuzz bass and power chords. Its sex music for jaded thrill seekers. - Dave Cromwell
