Not only do these labels have exquisite names, but exquisite taste too. Looking into the back catalogue of Till Deaf To Us Party, they've already had the pleasure of bringing the noisy duo, JOHN into our lives, and have recently signed our upcoming favourites, Night Owls. With that in mind, and with the likes of rock-pop act, Nelson Can, and garage rockers, F.M.K, on Like A Can of Bean Records, then The Entrepreneurs have plenty to look up to.
Move past the first cliché ten seconds of opener, 'Ombre', and the connection to this band is instant. The bewitching vocals, combined with the intrepid guitars and melodies makes for a throwback to the days of good old-school, indie rock that wasn't draped in unnecessary synths and shit. The Entrepreneurs have got a no-frills streak in them that resonates in their meaty riffs and hypnotic hooks. ‘It Strikes Again, Love’ flaunts their pop sensibilities as the repetitive chorus whirls through the bass and drums, whilst ‘Routine Lines’ lurches them into a psych realm that leaves as quickly as it comes. This diversity and elusiveness is what makes the trio such a credible act; they have so many different faces and so many interesting styles, all equally as strong and impressive as the next.
Highlight of the record, ‘Seagull’ begins with a lo-fi, tin-can, futuristic sound that puts them in Death From Above 1979 territory. The divide between the relentless, intimidating noise and the seductive vocals whispering, “He once killed another man / who looked like a seagull”, is what makes this track - and the whole EP, in fact - such a treat. It also makes their description of themselves as a “noise and romance” band, one hundred percent valid.
Within just five tracks, The Entrepreneurs have flexed their muscles, flashed their talent, and done it in a way that is totally admirable. This EP is full of wall to wall bangers with no room for any boredom or disappointment. If this band act as a way in to the Denmark scene, it's one hell of a good in.
