Review: The Karma Party – Dark Matters (EP)

We review The Karma Party’s debut EP. Find out what we thought of the Blackpool electro-punks here!

Artist: The Karma Party
Release: Dark Matters EP

Any lovers of Enter Shikari, Sonic Boom Six, Skrillex and the Prodigy will be thrilled to hear this debut EP from Blackpools very own The Karma PartyDark Matters is free to download from The Karma Party website and is a fantastic taste of things to come.

The EP is a collision of genres mashed up to create Punk Step, a new genre that incorporates punk, hardcore, darkstep and dub elements with fast, melodic guitars and electronica. This is accompanied by front man Merc’s explosive lyrics that put questions to our very British society.

The opening track is called ‘This is Britain‘ and is a straight insight as to the current state of our country. This is followed up by ‘Collapse‘ which takes inspiration from last years riots in London. ‘Push Forward‘  has an oriental backing to it while the guitar rips through each riff cutting like a knife while the tempo increases to an almost drum and bass finale. The electronica used throughout the album fits perfectly. There are moments of dub step, drum and bass, dance and techno which sounds perfectly placed next to the bands thrashing instruments.

With a debut EP sounding as crisp and well crafted as Dark Matters, The Karma Party have climbed the first step in sensational style. We really look forward to seeing some off the hook live shows.
