Video of The Day: Girls In Synthesis

There's a bunch of videos out there. Some of them are good. Some of them are a cut above. I like to think my picks for Video of The Day are a cut (or two) above.

Only together for a short while, London's Girls In Synthesis has certainly gotten things off on the right foot. The truculent, terse thrash of "The Mound" unleashes a defiant fury from the start, the trio adhering to a take-no-prisoners approach. Recalcitrant riffs are backed by demon beat drums and vocals that reside in a tempestuous middle ground somewhere between a scoff and a snarl. The video splices together close shots of the band at work and a cherubic-faced fellow running shirtless through London. So good that once won't be nearly enough.
