We’re loving Nassau by New York trio Grassfight, taken from new release Icon EP 2, which was officially released yesterday.
With shades of Interpol in the hypnotic, propulsive percussion, echoes of Dinosaur Jr in the swirling guitar, and a classic indie deep, monotone vocal, the track successfully ticks all the necessary boxes for a post-punk extravaganza without slipping into pastiche or becoming derivative – no mean feat.
Nassau is delightfully terse, taut with tension, and displays a simmering resentment – Grassfight have given us much to admire.
