NUMBERS: Numbers Across the Globe
By Jeremiah Griffey
SAMPLE PARAGRAPH: Their Alex Newport-recorded and Mixed We’re Animals came out in September on Kill Rock Stars. I didn’t notice until I saw them live, but Numbers periodically display a distinct Riot Grrrl edge; both Indira’s voice and Dave’s guitars lean toward early, even simplistic punk, while Eric sculpts soundscapes that keep the band grounded toward something a little more progressive. As a result We’re Animals lives up to the “epic” description given it by Kill Rock Stars. At times droning, at others driving, We’re Animals at times recalls My Bloody Valentine - though still more punk than shoegazer.
