“Perth’s Nervous Trend was a previously unknown commodity to me, but these two songs are some of the most vital and energising cuts I have heard all year. The band has a limited web presence, and there are only a few releases on it’s Bandcamp aside from a 2013 demo and this new 7”, featuring two tracks – ‘Shattered’ and ‘Decency’. Black Wire Records is putting out the 7” release, and also put out a vinyl offering of the original demo tracks in 2014.
Nervous Trend blends emotive post-punk and dark-wave with hard-core speed and ferociousness. It’s driven, it’s pointed, it boasts anger and hurt laced within each sentence with lyrics railing against abuses and injustices committed by loved ones and the world at large. ‘Shattered’ and ‘Decency’ show an unflinching look at two types of abuses – intimate and cruel, and societal suffocation. One glance at the lyrics and you know what the band is on about here – stuff that makes you ashamed of the world you live in.”
