Label: Chess Club
Released: 3rd June 2022
Leeds’ youngest post-punk band return to the forefront with their second EP release, following up their gritty debut with a more effervescent record that immediately reinvigorates a sense of excitement in the group.
On ‘We Aren’t Getting Out But Tonight We Might’, the teenage quartet inspire feelings of familiarity in one moment while being entirely unrecognisable in the next. The electronic quaking of opener ‘Same Thing’ bursts into a rumbling guitar-driven jangle soon joined by moody, casually-delivered performance from frontman Saul Kane. Twisted vocals and an explosion of fresh production shine through ‘Feeling Down’, while ‘To Be Honest’ features feisty riffs fleshing out a playful and frivolous four-minute thrasher.
Closing up with a last-ditch expression of frustration, these quick five tracks provide another short but sweet taste of L’objectif’s vast talent and potential. If you’re already a fan, take a step forward in their journey; if not, tune in for something as inventive as it is informed.
