"The album is a rare record that manages to be both fiery and textural. It combines the charge and speed of a record that resembles a car veering dangerously close to a cliff edge yet also manages to instil a confidence in the ability of the driver. MNNQNS exude a sense of controlled danger and chaos and this permeates throughout their debut. This feverish and unpredictable approach is also represented by the band’s diverse musical tastes and inspirations. If you’ve ever wondered what a record would sound like that shares influences as eclectic as Deerhunter, Death Grips, the Beach Boys, Omni and the films of Jean-Jacques Beineix then wonder no more because MNNQNS’ debut is the answer. Such a sense of determination and focus is apparent on the record throughout; whether it’s the post-punk assault of ‘Wire (Down To The)’, the harmony-soaked pop swing of ‘NotWhatYouThoughtYouKnew’, the deeply textural explorations of ‘Stagnant Pools’ - which combines seamless melody with an urgency that resembles This Heat - or the kick- down-your-front door charge of ‘Urinals’. This duality of harmony and discordance that exists on the record is something that frontman Adrian D’Epinay feels when he reflects on the recording process. “Some tracks make me want to go out and dance whilst others remind me of being totally alone in the countryside. Listening to the record is like being pushed away from the city and then dragged back in.”
