Aiden Lavelle

Tinnitus EP


This is simplicity itself from Aidan Lavelle (brother of James) for Damian Lazarus's Crosstown Rebels spin-off RebelLION. It's probably wildy complex, but achieving such a clean and simple sound, as we know, is tremendously difficult. The fantastically-entitled 'Tinnitus' is all pulsing bass, a spooky vocal urging us to 'move together' and (that word again) a simple, twinkling melody. Together these elements are unstoppable. On the flip, 'Stronger' and 'Play It' are admirably sturdy, 'Play It' in particular, but you'll find yourself returning to 'Tinnitus' again and again, mark our words.
