Glasgow Coma Scale is a scale for estimating brain dysfunction. But Glasgow Coma Scale is also a trio based in Frankfurt am Main (two of the three musicians have Polish roots) who are now presenting their first release. "Apophenia" is a 4-track EP with 28 minutes playing time. These 28 minutes have it in them and give an insight into the New Artrock visions of the band. Right in the opener "Syntagma" she does not make it easy for herself and the listener with the required crooked beat. And yet the driving structures are fixed in consciousness. "Radio silence" lives from the contrast between calm and biting. Simple but effective are the recurring themes in "Urania", which rise to walls of sounds. In the concluding "Kids Are Astronaut" the trio garnished their guitar walls with a hymn-like melody and put the icing on the cake of the EP. That makes you really hungry for a full-length album.
