Underpass "Red Reflection" TapeNo Sun
Red Reflection is one of the most noteworthy dark postpunk LPs, from the newer crop of bands, of the modern era. ..features the same lineup as their debut LP; the Robert Smith-like vocals of Alexander Miranda are as prominent as ever, and he has to be one of the best singers in the current postpunk world. Miranda’s vocals – which also remind of Mark Wilson of The Mob, too – are one of the highlights of the band.
It’s hard to believe that Underpass formed only 3 years ago, in 2013. Then again, if you look at the careers of bands as diverse as Joy Division and Minor Threat, within their 3 year timespan those bands did all they’ve ever been known for as well. Underpass’s new Red Reflection LP sees the Vancouver, B.C. postpunk band playing at a more mature, relaxed, and introspective pace. Similarities to Pornography-era The Cure, Modern Eon, Wipers, Glorious Din, Lack of Knowledge, and The Mob abound – and all in a good way.
Follow up to the 2014 release "Assimilation".
"Red Reflection" is the first full length by Underpass.
Recorded in Portland OR with Stan Wright at Buzz Or Howl.
