Our take

by Angus

DZ Deathrays' fourth studio full length album arrived about a year ago to the day from when this review was written, and has been a staple for us at Instant Classic whenever we feel like throwing our fists in the air and thrashing out a few air riffs, with special pick–me–up honours going to the very high energy ‘IN–TO–IT’.

The Brisbane once–duo, now trio, pack impressive quantities of energy, sincerity and grunt into 34 minutes over the course of Positive Rising: Part 1. From the urgently delivered crescendo of ‘Snakes’, through the triumphant guitars and twilit outro of ‘A Lot To Lose’ to one of our favourite wrecking ball vocal duets of the year on ‘Year Of The Dog’ (delivered courtesy of Matt Caughthran of L.A. punks The Bronx); this album delivers in spades.

Since many of our visitors are at the beginning of their vinyl voyage, we thought it'd be helpful to have a starter's compass.
