There's an inherent problem with NO CODA.
The Swedish group have that torn and tattered early grunge sound down to a tee, throwing in a few shoegaze textures for good measure.
But they just can't help writing pop songs. Gorgeous, perfectly defined, killer pop songs. Now onto their third single, new release 'Heretic' is a case in point.
Sure, there's a latent rage to the songwriting - "if looks could kill I'd kill 'em all..." they purr - but it's all coated in sugar sweet melodies.
A true ear-worm, 'Heretic' comes equipped with a video from Victor Claeson. Blistering, vivid colours abound as NO CODA writhe and scream their way through 'Heretic'.
Watch it now.
