New Band of the Day #114: EF’IL


Debut LP Heavy Breather is out now.

Who: Amir Anuar, Mohammad Afiq Akram, Muhamad Farid.

What: Post rock / post hardcore

Where: Ipoh, Malaysia.

Why: You know I don’t really know how much I like this at times frantic and at times gentle mixture of post hardcore and post rock. And that’s exactly why I’m sharing them with you. This Malaysian trio veer from the most delicate and beautiful sections to the absolute other end of the spectrum into frenetic and cacophonous noise. It’s a little unnerving.

Whatever it is, I can tell you one thing: I’ve never quite heard anything like this before. And that alone is cause to celebrate in 2017. Prepare to be taken into a glass case of emotion. Both brutal and beautiful.
