Tell a friend
Moderate Rock is damn sure the last to expect from the first full-length album by this almost all-female quartet from Vancouver, BC. This is compressed teenage angst that has been brewing in an imposed social boiler for far too long and now gushes out in nine abrasive and unpolished hardcore punk blasts that deal with pill-popping ravers ("Fuck that"), being raised and stepping out of line ("Resuscitate"), the drag of waiting at airports ("Airport violence") and lots of honest and pissed-off personal matters, like worthless friendships, conformable behaviour or just staying young and dumb. All that is spewed out in a whirlwind of "fucks" by singer Juls throaty and over-the-top voice and backed with stomping, fast and simple beats and a scratching, overwinded guitar. Comparisons to a female version of BRUTAL KNIGHTS are definitely not too far-fetched, though these kids obviously lean more on the new wave of DIY hardcore punk. Fuck.
