The Splits - Melody
From Finland (Helsinki to be more precise), The Splits decided upon their name by combining the names of The Slits and The Spits, let's be honest, you couldn't really choose two cooler bands to pay tribute to in such a way. The only downside is that it leaves you a lot to live up to, fortunately they seem to be making a pretty good fist of it.
Formed in 2010, their early demos were picked up by Germany's P Trash Records who were impressed enough to release them as the band's debut album. There was also a single released in Finland called Ghosts and this, along with the album can be checked out here : http://the-splits.bandcamp.com/.
Next week sees the release of sophomore album, 11, which is this time brought to you by those fine folks at Dirtnap Records. If moody yet accessible post punk is your bag then seek it out. This is called Melody......
