Another winning entry on the young yet impressive Tulle Collective roster, this debut presents a Manchester-cum-Dublin-cum-Belfast outfit steadfast in their commitment to skeletal aesthetics. Featuring current and former members of PINS, Girls Names and September Girls, Grave Goods already sport their share of post-punk credentials – and with them the wisdom to shun a regulation 45 minutes, knowing their wares can be communicated in half that time.

With scant room for subtlety, what’s left are seven cynical yet philosophical stabs at the pointlessness of existence, hewn from fiercely minimal frameworks with rawness and angularity at their very core. Perhaps the highest compliment is that Tuesday. Nothing Exists has the feel of a well-crafted demo; incisive, unembellished and fizzling with claustrophobic vigour which ruthlessly distils Grave Goods’ constituent parts.
