Since May 2018, Melbourne post-punk outfit PINCH POINTS have played clean, angular guitar harmonies and heavy mechanical riffs, belting-out group-vocals, all at a turbo-punk speed. J. Edward Keyes of Bandcamp Daily described their sound as ‘a barbed-wire coil of sound that’s as loose and springy as it is dangerously serrated’.
PINCH POINTS released their debut LP ‘Moving Parts’ in May 2019 through Roolette Records (AUS, USA), Six Tonnes de Chair (France), and Burger Records (USA), the follow-up release to internationally acclaimed and now sold-out cassette ‘MECHANICAL INJURY’ from July 2018 which ended up being 1 of 4 Australian albums included in Bandcamp’s ‘Best 100 releases of 2018’. MOVING PARTS sees the band explore heavier, faster and more technical styles. Usual elements still abound: clean guitars through maxed compression pedals, competing vocals, consistent drum fills and roaring bass, but every element has been stretched beyond the limitations of MECHANICAL INJURY.
PINCH POINTS maintain their DIY approach, having recorded and mixed the LP in their Coburg house, and created their own artwork. The band has also recently gotten back from playing 7 shows across 4 different Australian states on tour with Tropical Fuck Storm, Surfbort (USA), and All The Weathers.
PINCH POINTS are Acacia (Slush, Sunfruits), Adam (Gee Seas), Issy (Jungle Breed) and Jordan (U-bahn, PBS)
