Neu Pick: Belgian punks Mind Rays prep their takeover with ‘Still & All’

Belgian punks Mind Rays prep their takeover with ‘Still & All’

Taken from debut album ‘Nerve Endings’, the fast and furious garage sounds of Ghent are today’s Neu Pick.

Every weekday, DIY’s new music know-it-all Neu brings you one essential new release to get obsessed with. Today’s Neu Pick comes from Mind Rays.

In and out in a minute-and-a-half, Mind Rays’ new single ‘Still & All’ finds them lashing out in all directions.

From that first thundering drum-roll, right through to each slashing chorus, it’s a masterclass in furious garage punk - not a world away from TRAAMS if their dead-eyed resolve finally crumbled, replaced instead by a spitting, snarling fury.

Taken from a debut album, titled ‘Nerve Endings’ and released via PNKSLM on March 24th, get dragged into ‘Still & All’’s world of chaos below the record’s tracklisting.
