Giant Claw – Tunnel Mind

It’s hard to know where to begin with Giant Claw’s latest schizophrenic, tangential and obtuse offering.  It draws you in by conjuring giddy, technicolour imagery tinged with nostalgia for your old Atari, before devolving into passages of nightmarish fairground shlock that sound like a John Carpenter score realised by a toddler in the grips of a sugar high. There are some pretty euphoric moments peppered in the midst of all this though, particularly War Bride, which opens with the pitch-shifted glam stomp of Battles’ Atlas before devolving into a sparkling Emeralds-esque opus. It’s a lot of fun, but it’s probably not music to listen to if you’re planning on sleeping any time in the next few hours…
