Words: Saam Das

Best known for their work in Savages, Fay Milton​ and ​Ayse Hassan are now on the warpath with a new side-project, 180dB. Possibly inspired by the Aphex Twin track of the same name, or the average sound level in decibels of a rocket launch, the duo have nonetheless unveiled themselves in fearsome fashion. Featuring Meredith Graves and Nick Zinner, listen to in-your-face debut effort 'Road Trip' below.

Snarling guest vocalist Meredith Graves of Perfect Pussy fame and Yeah Yeah Yeahs guitar maestro Zinner would certainly be up there in a fantasy football-esque supergroup selection, emboldened further here by mixer Neil Comber (MIA, Django Django) and the mastering of Heda Kabry (Bjork, The Mars Volta). All in all, it's an insane hotbed of talent, and one that's delivered a raging inferno of a track, falling somewhere between The Stooges and the core duo's existing work in Savages.

Order 'Road Trip' at Bandcamp.
