Norway’s Spielbergs bring noisy catharsis on ‘We Are All Going To Die’

It’s nihilism, in the most satisfying of ways.

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 Spielbergs.

There’s a particular strain of noisy indie rock - the kind where pummelling yet melodic guitars batter you round the heart with nary a pause for breath - that seems to lend itself to big, emotive blasts of catharsis. Japandroids do it well. Titus Andronicus have been known to dabble. And now Oslo trio Spielbergs are joining the fold.

Full of huge, lung-busting, shouting-into-the-wind vocals and relentless drums, guitars and everything else, cheerily-titled new single ‘We Are All Going To Die’ shows little concern for restraint. But where sometimes this full-throttle approach can be, well, a bit much, here Spielbergs make a solid cause for just letting it all out and running headfirst off that metaphorical cliff.

Hell, if you’re gonna pop it anyway, you might as well go in style.

‘We Are All Going To Die’ is the first track taken from the ‘Distant Star EP’, due April 27th via By The Time It Gets Dark.
