Employed To Serve describe themselves as miserable Post-Hardcore, but you’d be wise to ignore the negative connotations of arguably one of 2014’s brightest talents.
Starting out as a two-piece bedroom project, Justine and Sammy released two EP’s through Grindcore Karaoke, the label run by Jay from Agoraphobic Nosebleed, before adding Michael and Robbie into the mix.
The first product of this unification is the Holy Roar Records, March 31st release, ‘Change Nothing, Regret Everything.’ a musical open letter to those who despise their current situation, yet, do nothing to alter it.
1. Change Nothing
2. No One’s Child
4. Perfect Smiles and Crooked Teeth
5. Heavy Limbs
6. You Looked Forever
With a raucous sound that’s chaotic and bleak in equal measures, the gut wrenching vocals of Justine Jones ensure that every single lyric is delivered with the animosity the protagonist was intended to feel.
There is little respite as Employed To Serve hurtles through the twelve minutes of the six-track EP. But with a tour schedule in the coming months that will take the band throughout the UK and Europe, there’s plenty of opportunity to see the Woking foursome.
