Single of the Day: Siamese “Slaughterhouse” (2018)

Adelaide’s Siamese are burning through 2018 already with the release of their great new tune, “Slaughterhouse”. Coming through under the ranks of Horror My Friend/West Thebarton‘s Tom Gordon, the four piece have definitely been in good company since breaking through on to more radars in the local music scene last year. “Slaughterhouse” positions Siamese in an exciting new space, creatively.

Continuing to spread their wings following on from the success of previous singles “Computer Patient” and “Scatterbrain”, “Slaughterhouse” warps snarling vocals in with finessed guitar work that prompts callbacks to Silversun Pickups, Sonic Youth and more currently, Violent Soho and Ceres. Emerging further out from the umbrella of 90’s alt-rock and shoegaze that marked their earlier material, Siamese’s new effort signals an exciting new chapter for an Australian band you need to watch.
