Bench Press

Melbourne’s post-punks Bench Press debut EP is a stripped back affair, which has sadly been stripped back too far.

Throughout the record’s 10 track offering the band have obviously been influenced by classic post-punk and old school rock and roll.

Whilst the tracks tell interesting stories the delivery unfortunately pushes you away rather than pulling you in closer. The vocal deliver style is very basic, essentially feeling like someone is simply shouting at you for the duration of the record.
