GHXST
Black Camaro Club The Mammoth/ Tip Top Recordings

Article written by Ged M - Aug 18, 2012

GHXST are a New York hipster noise trio - Shelley X, Chris Wild and Nathan La Guerra – clearly influenced by Royal Trux and Sonic Youth. The slurred delivery, metallic riffs and general scuzzrock attitude of their latest single ‘Black Camaro’ take you back to the highwater mark of 90s grunge, while ‘Doomgirl’ is Sabbath-channelling alt.rock. The single we were sent includes the more experimental No Rest for the Wicked EP; the guitar washes on ‘Bad Blood’ remind you of early Sonic Youth while ‘Deth Valley’ is a monstrously distorted stompy blues beat and ‘Devil Between Us’ a wind-tunnel booming horror movie soundtrack that casts a cold shadow. This is retro and stylish but should come with a warning that it's only available in midnight black.
