SKY EATS AIRPLANE
EVERYTHING PERFECT ON THE WRONG DAY
Throbbing beats and savage riffs collide on Sky Eat Airplane's debut nine-track affair EVERYTHING PERFECT ON THE WRONG DAY. Reminiscent of a less-destructive version of Horse The Band, this Texas duo's penchant for keeping the strobe lights flashing ("Giants in the Ocean") lovingly fondles the video game nerd in us all while their scattershot metalcore leanings gets tossed around in the centrifuge long enough to spit out Taking Back Sunday-esque acoustic punk ("She Is Just a Glitch") and feral tough guy batterings ("Everything Perfect on the Wrong Day") embellished with heavy doses of electronically-enhanced beats and noises. Sounding like a club that books techno dance parties and screaming metal shows in adjacent rooms with paper-thin walls acting as barriers between, Sky Eats Airplane pits shiny shirts versus wifebeaters to a fight to the finish.
