Blom is a new band featuring two members of Tough Tits (who in their short life gained a load of goodwill and good press before calling it a day after just 1 classic EP and a single). This debut EP is angrier, and meaner than Tough Tits but there's still that keen ear for a hook and a sharp sense of humour prevalent in these two tracks. "Powerfrau" is as direct and potentially alienating introduction to a band you're likely to hear and judging by "Skankwitch" it looks like they might even threaten the take fellow NE noise-mongers Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs' crown as the grand masters of sleazy doom. The latter also seems like a pitch perfect satirical dig at social media misogyny and the closing lines of "difficult woman", "disgusting woman", "she needs to die", "I know your type" will be depressingly familiar to anyone who's ever had the misfortune to look on twitter. Exciting stuff!
