Beaten By Them much in the vein of Explosions in the Sky and Mogwai offer up some pretty heavy duty tunes. Signs of Life is a mix of classical brilliance and rock and roll at it’s best.
Going up and down up and down, Beaten By Them could possibly be the next noise rock superstars with their great use poetic tone and musical mastership. The first track Town Too Small The louder I turn it up the better it sounds which is always a good thing since I’m losing my hearing anyway.
Over the course of this EP I’m bombarded with vast and beautiful sounds crafted with the intention to blow you mind. I’d say Signs of Life is an ambient masterpiece that you’d be hard stretched to find out there amongst this new tidal wave of noise rockers definitely worth the five minute search for them
I give it a 7.7/10
