Nottingham seems to have a fondness for loud complicated rock music that sounds like a Rubik’s Cube slotting into place with multiple twisting and much cursing. Nottingham label Mountain of Records has released a single from Leeds rockers Bearfoot Beware that brings together hardcore noise and math-rock. ‘Trellum’ is full of quirky movements, changing time signatures, punk vocals and such complex rhythms you could plot it on graph paper. ‘Fox Boy’ shows a love of 90s hardcore and a love of contrast - from fierce metallic shedding one minute to quiet and suppressed power the next. This is high energy, shape-shifting modern guitar rock, though the idiosyncratic arrangements on ‘My Love Is A Seagull’ makes you wonder where math-rock ends and prog-rock begins.
