The debut release from Toronto's Traitrs is a bleak journey that touches on the dark post-punk of The Cure and Bauhaus. The album is dark and laborious, yet refreshingly so; there are no glossy fairy tales here, instead we are left to consider the painfully cumbersome reality of the human existence.
