As the emo revival seems to continue apace, fuzz bombs like Spielbergs‘ recent single Five On It seemed to indicate that this gang of savvy young Norwegians would sit at the poppier end of the spectrum.  And, while they have the ability to effortlessly deliver ebullient garage bangers, there’s also a depth and maturity here that is quite unexpected.

The off-kilter tempo and time changes in Not For Long are contrasted with the absolute desire to rock the fuck out on tracks like 4AM and a more mature slow burn on the contemplative Familiar. With This Is Not The End, Spielbergs are staking a claim for one of the best guitar records of the year before it’s really got started.
