BERMUDA LOVE were sent to me by my friend Jon who plays in Blue Youth, one of my personal favourite bands. BERMUDA LOVE actually consists of two members of Blue Youth alongside drummer Chris Dimas (records/masters Blue Youth & drums in Anemone) but in actuality sounds like Dangers! took a chill pill and mixed it with Comadre. Yep, I think a lot of readers are going to dig this.

The four-piece recorded their only release in 2014 but 'Triangle' didn't see the light of day until 2016. The mood is set from a few seconds into the opener, as "Red" is a screamy, sassy and caustic hardcore tune with a very good sense of melody. "Bones" is rooted in an awesome bassline and is kind of like post-hardcore with Dangers! vocals while "Ghost" is straight-up, epic, post-hardcore that has some experimental instrumentation during the intro but'll have you bangin' your head along by the one-minute mark. It also rides a wild solo to close out. "Nightstalking" doesn't let up, is one of the faster tunes on here and precedes the self-explanatory "Interlude" (which sounds like Mono). "Burning Books" is another driving, anthemic track that lays down the rock come 45 seconds. Once the vocals kick in this thing is a beast and easily one of the best songs here. "White Devil" has a plethora of dual vocals (which I'm always a sucker for) and is definitely the heaviest song on the LP. Closer "Rain" kind of wraps up everything great about the band and displays it here and concludes with an excellent Japanese-video-game-esque guitar wail.

The band is on hiatus, but is sounds like if the conditions are right something else might see the light of day.
