Post-punkers Grassfight deliver ominous, icy free song, 'Look Homeward, Heathen'

Though the term “shoegaze” has been applied to post-punk trio Grassfight, it doesn’t really fit, not least because you suspect the New York City-via-Denton, Texas, group is wearing boots suitable for stomping through the underworld.

After releasing an EP called “Icon” last fall to buzzy reviews, Grassfight returns this summer with a new EP, conveniently also called “Icon,” full of brooding songs like “Look Homeward, Heathen.” The tune is piled high with icy guitars stabbing through a low, menacing rhythmic rumble while singer Nathan Forster delivers ominous vocals that sounds like he’s singing through a payphone in need of maintenance.

It’s compelling stuff, and “Icon, EP2” can be yours July 24.
