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 are currently in the midst of their release campaign for their LP ‘Moving
Parts’ that released May 31 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
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.
PINCH POINTS are Acacia (Slush, Sunfruits), Adam (Gee Seas), Issy (Jungle Breed)
and Jordan (U-bahn, PBS).
