Is there any guitar band quite as raw as Protomartyr? Their live shows have always shown a band driven by a searing fury, as frontman Joe Casey stares you down and the blistering music churns underneath. All this was captured in their fourth album – their first for Domino – as the band broadened the scope of their laser-focused wit trying to find the words and sounds for these uneasy, uncomfortable times. The result, Relatives in Descent, is an epic document that seems to capture all the unease in the world.
