Dublin pair Thread Pulls are worth investing in a good pair of headphones. New single ‘You Melt Words’, backed with ‘5/8 Rhythm Here’, feels both sparse and echoey, and packed at the same time. A palette of noises combine to make something that is intriguing, that you know shouldn’t work, but it just does. And the percussion breakdown in the middle works so well. Thread Pulls treat the listener mean for ages, keeping them more than keen. B-side ‘5/8 Rhythm Here’ is, despite the name, more straightforward, more pop, if we can call it that. They’re releasing the single, a limited pressing of 100 with special packaging including unlabelled vinyl, stamped sleeve and two glossy photographic prints, on the Belfast label CF Records on October 22.
