Die Die Die did the support for the legendary Slint in the Paradiso about 4 years ago. However, the hyperactive mix of noise, indie and punk didn't make a huge impression.
With their third album 'Form' Die Die Die goes for their second chance and they make a better impression now. Think of A Place to Bury Strangers that released themselves from the huge piles of noise, and add a young boy as the singer. The high-pitched vocals are a matter of taste but it's an addition on top of the youthful energy Die Die Die still has in their minds. The songwriting process has improved and is almost mature without sounding silly.
The best thing actually is the combination of the instruments; the resonance of the eighties guitar parts, the drum beats (you know the ones Joy Division made famous, including the typical drum rolls) and the youthful vocals. “We Built Our Own Oppressors” is the best example and is my favorite track. It also included the Refused “wow” vocal line as they did in “New Noise”.
Sometimes Die Die Die (in the biography the name is written as Die! Die! Die!) is slowing down a bit and then they are rumbling in the backyard of My Bloody Valentine and Sonic Youth. “Daze” has something to do with My Bloody Valentine and “Paquin” is like Sonic Youth in the early days. In “Shine Through” and “Frame” the faster and slowed down eighties worship is combined in one song. This dynamical and naughty sound is also approved for the festival grounds and the energy on ‘Form’ can't be missed on stage.
If you don’t like your indie rock silly than Die Die Die is your band!
