Tuff Love – Dross EP

Packed with fuzzy thrills and ruffled melodies, Dross, the new EP from Tuff Love is a musical map of the realities of daily strife and modern angst, dreamily delivered by the Glasgow duo.

With their disjointed and slightly distorted sound Julie Eisenstein (guitar, vocals) and Suse Bear (bass, vocals) reveal themselves to be competent creators of delicately confrontational music that barrels along with a DIY vibe but never feels shambolic. Stretches of fluid melody and lazy vocal strains over twitchy guitar strums and audible fret work nod to the C86 style, but there’s a sense of responsibility for creativity also to be found within. Soft gusto and twinkling lines of electric guitar on the less prettily named Cum counterpoint the frantic riffing and punky attitude of first single Slammer, whilst That’s Right rollocks along with a positive sense of urgency. A blissed out and infectious set of harmonies from a band bristling with talent.
