High Dependency Unit

dunedin sonic 3-piece (tristian dingermans, dino karlins and neil phillips) in the mold of a louder, younger mogwai, born out of metal influence and small-town frustration, their startling sophmoric higher ep [1997] was given the remix treatment sound after release, resulting in the expanded and thoroughly dynamic higher++ album the following year, singalling a new change in focus.
what happened is that the bands sparse, thundering tones were processed and reformed by local producers to a more melodic and soothing end, in particular Soundproof’s remix of ‘lull’ becoming something of a hit, an intense epic of a song that fluctuates with great beauty and shimmering gleam. this trend continued with the diverse follow-up cross-channel multi-tap, which even caught the ear of veteran us producer steve albini, who took the band under his wing for 2001s us debut fireworks.
