...more addictive than crystal meth

Reviewing the last Death Set EP I wrongly stated they were from Baltimore, whereas the duo are actually Australian.

What I didn’t get wrong though is how utterly kick-ass their music is, a fact (well, strongly stated opinion) that is confirmed by their excellent new single Around The World. Poppy synths, grinding guitars and scratchy vocals are combined in such a flaky manner it makes the song seem half-formed, but a hook that’s more addictive than crystal meth flavoured Pringles shines through the endearing mess. The original version replaces the synths with a buzzing new wave guitar to fine effect.
