After a string of reverb-drenched singles, post-punk five-piece La Bête Blooms have honed in on a more gritty sound, capturing the taste of what it's like to be from Hull, with this feedback-ridden self-titled debut.
The record brims with contrasting emotions from the city of culture, the conflict of positivity within the art scene of Hull, and the negative outside perception the city is up against.
From the bleak despair of first single 'TV Speak' to the newfound optimism of 'Everyday's the Same', La Bête Blooms encapsulate a determination and desperation on tracks 'Stay Away' and EP closer 'All For You'.
