The One Hundred’s debut album has been a long time coming and, in a world of decreasing attention spans, that could prove big trouble.
It’s fortunate then that they’ve injected their genre-smashing sound with pure fire, letting it loose to wreak total havoc.
See, ‘Chaos + Bliss’ is a strong and assured record that leaves no stylistic stone unturned. The fire-spitting urban grit of ‘Disengage’ segues seamlessly into the downtuned riffs of ‘Hand Of Science’ and the all-out dancefloor seduction of ‘Boomtown’; the London four-piece putting their stamp on each genre.
This is a fearless debut that sets The One Hundred on a very promising path.
