Through sirening synths, palpitatingly frenetic percussion and walls of guitars that I’m not entirely sure the biggest stadiums could contain, Noise Ctrl’s latest electro-hard rock heavy hitter, Please See Me, strips the titular vulnerability and transplants electrifying energy that is almost enough to run a power grid off.
The Columbus, Ohio trio often goes nuclear with their self-described fruity as fuck hard rock edge; it’s a means to an expressive end, and the noise they’re creating in the music industry is impossible to ignore. Allowing us to love them even more, they never take themselves too seriously, heightening the appeal in the dynamically exhilarant vocals, which know all too well how to wrap themselves around a vocal hook.
Listening to Please See Me, it was impossible to entertain anything but the maniacally manicured sonic blasts of euphoria coming at me. If any outfit can distract humanity from the beginning of the end, it’s Noise Ctrl. Now that I can’t listen to Mindless Self Indulgence with a clean conscience, I know who I will be turning to for some riotous catharsis.
Please See Me is now available to stream on Spotify.
