"Almost three years after the release of ‘Shake’, ENDZ is (almost) back with ‘Harmed’. The album was recorded –on the edge– at the Breakglass Studio in Montreal under the super-supervision of Jace Lasek (The Besnard Lakes, Suuns, Land Of Talk, Wolf Parade, Patrick Watson, The Luyas) with the help of several musicians from the thrilling Montreal musical scene.
Crossing the Atlantic has propelled the cluttered minds of Fab Detry, Loïc b.o. and Kevin P (future past members of Austin Lace, Flexa Lyndo, Fabiola, He Died While Hunting…) into a dizzying spiral. The band focused on the trio’s very essence: sharp guitars turning into shoegaze patches, a groovy bass guitar taking unexpected turns, moody drums giving hugs and slaps, naive vocals and pop melodies putting up a smokescreen on the whole thing.
A wound is always hidden within the most melodic parts of ‘Harmed’: the outside world, between constant aggression and nonsense, inspires every word and is reflected in the music. Would this album be abstractly political? Maybe. Undoubtedly."
