Clearly METZ guitarist and vocalist Alex Edkin has had a number of musical ideas and melodies gestating for the last few years that he needed to unleash on the world in his debut solo album. Strong distorted guitar hooks leap out on each of these ten tracks. The songs are very much about feel – some distortion and feedback can be heard so the sounds have not been cleaned up or reprocessed within an inch of its life. Indeed, this is much more listenable as it feels ‘live’.

The result of this alchemy is an enjoyable authentic collection of alt. pop emotions that are performed with passion and feeling rather than technical perfection. Weird Nightmares will bring a little noisy sunshine to your day.
