Before “Journey’s End”, MEZKO were a bunch of space goddesses who made majestic synth darkness. Now, they’ve gone and become fully fledged queens of pop. Crystal Castles, Grimes, Purity Ring – put down the keytar, and hit the dole-queue, you’re out of a job!
This thing – it’s a full blown pop explosion. Fucking BANG! It shows MEZKO hitting a new peak for themselves, delving head first into a territory that was only hinted at in their previous songs. Once “Journey’s End” hits that chorus, you can practically feel yourself being flung into that scene from the Matrix 2, where everyone’s caked in mud and raving. This whole track is covered in thrilling from top to bottom.
MEZKO play the Gaelic Club this Saturday with Shocking Pinks, Ill Winds, and Lovely Head.
