Hunters - MOM + POP
FILTER Grade: 81%
By A. D. Amorosi on October 3, 2013
Dozy, fuzz-toned pop dies on the vine when it roots in the messily lackadaisical—take the example of shoegazing beyond the epic savagery of My Bloody Valentine. Where Hunters is concerned, there’s a spunky, punkish element involved, something you can blame/credit on frontgirl Izzy Almeida and her schoolgirl yelp on the slow-burning “Seizure” and the hot-trotting “She’s So.” Hunters isn’t a perfect album, reliant as it is on Almeida’s chirpy, slurry tendencies to bring the joys, but it’s a nice start.
