Premiere: So Pitted get dirty and deranged on debut album ‘neo’

The Sub Pop signings take grunge into a new millennia on their debut full-length, streaming on DIY ahead of its release next week.

Seattle-based and signed to Sub Pop, there’s a certain set of associations that So Pitted are likely to be lumped with from the off. That ever-more meaningless ‘grunge’ tag be damned though - on debut album ‘neo’, So Pitted fashion their own brand of crunching, gnarled madness out of the sludge and darkness of their minds.

Streaming below in full ahead of its release next week, it’s a deranged trip down a psychedelic new wave of heavy, heady guitar music. The trio fashion a noise that’s “maddeningly loud, loosely formed, disgusting like a romantic weekend trip down the local sewers,” as we peg in our review - it’s a captivating first look at a band who are sure to carry on forging their own dirt path.
