Well this is intense. When you think of bands from Brooklyn you think of parties, rock’n’roll and good times. Russian Baths on the other hand spend a significant portion of this song just creating a post-punk atmosphere with searing guitars and pile-driver drums. It takes over 90 seconds before the vocals kick in on ‘Poolhouse’ and even then it’s a soulless, soporific vocal that speaks to you from another realm. The Pixies-esque guitars come back and you’re left feeling like you just walked in on your friendly vicar shooting up whilst watching 70s gymnastics videos. Unsettling doesn’t even cover it.
