The five-song STRANGE SYMMETRY EP marks the debut of the Seattle-based band Past Lives, which features former members of Blood Brothers and Shoplifting. The tracks range from raw, garagey punk explosions to quirky, angular, creep-rock nuggets mining a dark, edgy feel that makes the most of tension-release dynamics. 1 Beyond Gone Past Lives 2:53. 2 Strange Symmetry Past Lives 3:7. 3 Skull Lender Past Lives 2:38. 4 Reverse the Curse Past Lives 2:38. 5 Chrome Life Past Lives 3:53

It starts as soon as the album begins, with the opener Beyond Gone starting with chimes and random guitar notes, as Jordan airily sings Seconds swell swell swell to hours, and hours stack stack stack to days as the rest of the band kicks in. The rest of the song adds in different elements to the sound without sacrificing the integrity of the track, as it builds into its final distortion filled climax. The title track Strange Symmetry takes the opposite route, throwing in your face a guitar riff that won’t leave your head for days

Past Lives' description on paper provides a surprisingly accurate insight into what they actually sound like. After all, it's three-fifths of the defunct Blood Brothers - and one of those fifths isn't co-vocalist Johnny Whitney - along with Rumors Laid Waste-era Blood Devin Welch, who's also in the Seattle/Melbourne act Shoplifting. Yeahâ?¦I didn't know who Shoplifting was either, but one listen to them here and the pervading elements are immediately clear  . Past Lives aren't quite at that same devastating point of salient chemistry the Bloods eventually hit, but considering Strange Symmetry is only their first release, it's far from a bad start.
