Hormone Junkies' first EP release in 2008 PROOF OF CONCEPT was called 'dance music made by people that you can tell love guitars' filled with 'fantastically dark calm' with sonic vistas 'panoramic and minimal at the same time'. One reviewer raved: 'The music gives off the following kind of vibe: "Be careful. If you taste our sweat, you will break out into hives and go into some psychedelic cardiac arrest." In their second release, 2009's ARSENAL, Hormone Junkies expand their sound to new levels of beauty and exploratory vigor, embracing a spirit of transcendent rebellion steeped in the blood of the groove. Stuart Dummit's guitars weave prayers of yearning above a bubbling gumbo of irresistible rhythm from Richard Cravens' sequencers, tortured piano samples and found-sound shrapnel. Desperate melodies jump into the aural abyss in a fruitless search for peace, only to perish between howling guitars and the sonic chaos of the oppressed seeking justice on the streets of distant Tehran. No heart is innocent, no frequency goes unpunished, even in the moonlit rustic riverside splendor that is Lupus-on-the-Missouri. In the spirit's war against tyranny, love knows no nation, and Hormone Junkies have delivered the soundtrack: ARSENAL.
