Originally available as a companion piece to Le Reno Amps’ recent long-player, Appetite – initial pre-orders of said album received the EP in a neat little package cunningly named, Appetite for Construction - Armellodie Records is happy to announce the full digital release of the Construction EP.
The Construction EP is anything but the leftovers from the Appetite recording sessions and in its own right an unashamedly upbeat and melody-strewn rampage of aggressive guitar pop, with flecks of rockabilly, country, blues and punk glittering through. When asked to expand on the contents within Scott Maple clarifies;
"Imagine your favourite bands were pumped full of steroids before being cooped up together in a small zoo enclosure. Every day the zoo-keeper visits them and throws them cuts of high-quality steak which has been marinated in same-said steroids. The bands go feral and fuck like bunnies until they produce offspring. Le Reno Amps sound like the music the zoo-keeper writes on her days off. She volunteers once a week at the local Hospital's WRVS shop. It isn't much but it gets her out of the house and things haven't been the same at home since her mother died.”
