Album Review: Darts - Below Empty and Westward Bound (2015 LP)

I had never heard Darts before single "Westward Bound" popped up on my newsfeed. The first play hit me flush in the face at breakneck speed; I was hearing a reincarnation of an angst-ridden Isaac Brock circa Lonesome Crowded West. Animated whaling and strained vocal yelps backed by the gravel-road scratches of guitars and a pounding rhythm section. It's all treated with a steady dose of frenetic hysteria, yet grounded by a melodic poise. And so is the Melbourne five-piece's debut album, Below Empty and Westward Bound.
