Taking a Sonic Youth approach but arriving at some dark place between Neurosis and Chelsea Wolfe, Dystopian Future Movies have crafted a unique combination of discordant layers, atmospheric swells and colossal heaviness.
Weaving lyrical catharsis with hypnotic vocal melodies, Irish-born Caroline Cawley uses an evolving, experimental guitar sound that expands to an emotive, dynamic, roller-coaster of beauty and chaos combining to create a firestorm of sound through collaboration with drummer Bill Fisher, bassist Oisin O'Doherty and guitarist Rafe Dunn.
