If you so much as say the name Dark Stares to us, our minds will be overrun for the rest of the day with every line form their Tell Your Friends release. With a complete monopoly on all that is catchy, they know how to rock you until you give.

So when we received their “Bad Machine” video, it was with complete submission to their sound, knowing full well the consequences, that we hit play.

The result, exactly what we expected. Hard beats, grinding riffs and infectious vocals; yeah, we give.

Up until now, there was an admiration with such a solid release in Tell Your Friends; now, we know it was not just a stroke of luck. Their presence is powerful, memorable and one to keep an eye on for sure. Until we get our hands on their forthcoming EP, check out “Bad Machine.
