UNHINGED - 'Nostalgia' CD review



UNHINGED - 'Nostalgia' CD review


By the time this zine comes out, Stourbridge-based four piece UNHINGED will already have a second EP done, despite only having released this, their first EP back in December. 'Nostalgia' features four tracks of pacey, angry punk rock that has its hardcore influences firmly rooted in the old-school 80s and 90s, with elements of IGNITE and GORILLA BISCUITS coming through the more contemporary sound of bands like THE BRONX and CANCER BATS, and produced locally with a pretty DIY, lo-fi recording. Pacey drumwork, rock-infused hardcore riffs, and a combination of angry shouts and don't-give-a-shit attitude style singing that makes for some pretty catchy moments, all meld to make for an impressive debut EP. Check out 'Homesick' and its accompanying video for something to go on, and then go check out their new EP.
