With a name like Grave Babies, an EP title like Gothdammit, and songs called Nightmare, Bloodstains, and Mourning Heir it is not hard to guess to which musical mast the band have nailed their flag. That they are able to do so whilst maintaining a healthy dose of self-awareness of the flat-out ridiculousness of much that inhabits this particular genre does them great credit.
Watch the video for the murky, distorted Fuck Off, full of tongue in cheek gothic imagery: ghosts, Ouija boards, nightmarish figures and religious iconography and download the gloomy, drone-filled sounds of Nightmare.
The EP was released last month on SubPop – order a copy direct here.
