The usual problem with fuzz pop is that while it might give something perfectly enjoyable to listen to for a couple of minutes, it tends to lack any valuable direction. Procedure Club are the opposite. Lacking the instant enjoyment of Irish fuzzsters Henparty, they hold the same musical depth and passion of The Sky Drops. Citing the likes of Phil Spector and Beat Happening, the shoegazing influences are much more distinguishable than the music itself, but in a good way.
Layering echoing female vocals against a backdrop of ambient rhythms with a rocky edge, there’s a rare relief achieved in listening to these guys. Perhaps the highlight of Procedure Club’s music is each member’s ability to hold on to their individuality, which can be interpreted as refreshing or regressive in today’s world of creative and cultural sharing.
The Procedure Clubs new album entitled Doomed Forever is out now on Slumberland Records, preview its lead track “Feel Sorry for me” above.
