Ultrapop. Sugar and spice.
Detroit’s the Armed follows its breakthrough 2018 set Only Love with Ultrapop, a daring collection that mixes the fury of hardcore punk and the disorienting riffage of math rock with a dollop of accessibility that spices up the hooks without diluting their intensity. The shift is both delicate and profound, and it’s bound to convert the unconverted. —Craig Jenkins
