Austrian post rockish screamo act PETTERSSON have joined their forces with Swedish screamo band DET ÄR DÄRFÖR VI BYGGER STÄDER have released 2 new tracks compiled for a brief split record on a number of amazing labels: KoepfenDingleberry RecordsThrough Love RecordsMy Name Is Jonas RecordsPundonor RecordsHardcore For The Losers , KrimskramzZilpzalp RecordsRubaiyat Records, and Time As A Color. Both bands prove themself extremely resourceful players, as well as masterful storytellers and yet again, the results of their work are thrilling!

Vienna meets Stockholm, as Pettersson teams up with Det är därför vi bygger städer to spoil us with one hell of a split record.

In customary style, Pettersson – who were able to leave a remaining impression with their 2016 debut, Rift & Seam – are leading off the split with the three minute, post-rock influenced screamo epos, Sensory Deprivation > Motion Sickness. Slowly Rising, the song is characterized by the ability of Adrian, Dominik and Tobias not to exaggerate, but to make clever use of post-rock riffs, wrapping Dominik’s breathtaking vocals into a well-composed sound garment.

Hereinafter, Det är därför vi bigger städer comes up with their part of the split, shifting the focus to a edgier sound, sticking a bit closer to the roots of the genre. On Reverse Polarity, the Swedes offer an intense mix of versatile guitar-playing and wild drumming, changing the pace quite a lot.

Released by ten different DIY labels, the split, whose cover artwork was created by Chaz Hewitt of Human Hands, will be available on black and grey seven inch vinyl.

Originally premiered at Form und Leere blog here.
