about

CD AVAILABE HERE:- jenandstew.com/item/BENT-snakes-and-shapes/296

BENT are a trio of wonky post-punkers from Brisbane Australia. On “Snakes and Shapes”, their 2nd full length, the band deliver 14 tracks of inspired and skewed pop - raw and beautiful.

Comparisons are inevitable, though potentially lazy, masking the bands originality. (However, The Raincoats, Kleenex and early Slits may give you a suggestion of the bands sonic intent). Heidi’s vocals are joyous in delivery, almost primal in execution. Spacious drums, present a unique clatter and clang provided by Skye, freeing up the bass to provide rhythmic anchor. The guitar, (Glen), is remarkable; inventive and unhinged.

BENT are startling in their intent. Powerful without cliché or hubris.
