It’s problematic trying to label Queensland’s Violent Soho with a genre, as they sit across a combination of punk/rock/grunge/garage. Sometimes they’re a screaming band, and at other times their guitar riffs and instrument build-ups make them sound like The Pixies. Last Wednesday, they fronted up to a full capacity ANU Bar with two other very noisy and frantic bands in tow. Trophy Eyes were loud. They had lots of energy, and solid music, but the screaming was abrasive and distorted. It’s often difficult to relate to music without any tune or melody.
