BENT are a trio of wonky post-punkers from Brisbane Australia. On "Snakes and Shapes", their 2nd full length, the band deliver 14 tracks of inspired and skewed pop - raw and beautiful.

Comparisons are inevitable, though potentially lazy, masking the bands originality. (However, The Raincoats, Kleenex and early Slits may give you a suggestion of the bands sonic intent).

Heidi's vocals are joyous in delivery, almost primal in execution. Spacious drums, present a unique clatter and clang provided by Skye, freeing up the bass to provide rhythmic anchor.

The guitar, (Glen), is remarkable; inventive and unhinged. BENT are startling in their intent.

Powerful without cliché or hubris.
