Three members of the Manc underground get together to release EP of atmospheric post-punk.
Made up of former members of two veteran bands of the Manchester underground, Velocets and Hans Island, Types, have hit the ground running. Throw in a surprise release of their atmospheric debut EP, and they’re already on to a winner.
Fusing together elements of post-rock, math-rock and post-punk, the record, for the most part, bristles with quiet discontent before bursting with occasional moments of anthemic optimism. Very little is known about Types at present, and as a result the EP poses more questions than it answers. Allowing such an enigmatic air to surround your band is rarely a bad thing, and while it might be a while yet before the questions have answers, we’ll have to be content with a full stream of their debut EP below:
