The Toronto, ON-based act DAVIDS is yet another entry in a long list of purposely mysterious acts that are mysterious for the sole purpose of forcing the listener to pay attention to the music without the focus on the artist or marketing hooks. Publicly claiming that their influences are New Order, Public Enemy, the Toronto-based electronic act has a sound that reminds me quite a bit of Ministry – loud, abrasive and murky industrial electronica, which evokes a sense of menace, anxiety and obsession, as you’ll hear on “Right On,” the third single off their 0613EP.  

Adding to the mystery, is the fact that DAVIDS doesn’t appear in the official video for the “Right On;” instead the members of the Cayuga, ON-based black metal band, Apocryphal Avulsion doing dark and fucked up things in the forest (which is fitting for the song).
