Zeahorse, much like their countrymen Yes i’m Leaving have been part of Australia’s very vital and dynamic underground rom scene for quite some time. In particular, Zeahorse has developed a reputation across their homeland for a sound that has been compared by some critics to the likes of Fugazi, Slint, The Jesus Lizard and others – and that may be more or less true; however, for me at least, their sound on their latest single “Pool,” off their their forthcoming Stateside debut, Pools reminds me quite a bit of Yo La Tengo’s “Boats,” but with an even more blistering, acidic feel.
