Pedigree Run Away LP

The rhythms on PEDIGREE’s Run Away, which veer between a driving 4/4 and a jolting stop/start, recall many of the Copenhagen bands of the ’00s. That’s reinforced by their comparatively clean, catchy guitars. Catchy, but not above a little sonic grit or atonal drones (another quality they share with GORILLA ANGREB). I don’t want to stretch the reference, as this is not the unabashed K-town worship of PLANET Y’s 2022 En Plads i Solen (not that I’d complain if it was), but it’s channeling much of the same angsty bop.
