Like angels of doom, Pariah’s influence brings things back down to earth. They’re perhaps the most Glasgwegian-sounding of the 3 acts, but there’s a twist - ambient guitars and chiming keyboards giving way to towering walls of synthesized noise. And then the vocals kick in - choral, reverberant, like we’re present at some bizarre religious service. I can feel the hairs rise on the back of my neck and realise that for the 3rd time in an afternoon we’re experiencing The Future of Music.
