This track is destined for grime filled indie dance floors nationwide as the Canadian jangle-pop perfectionists give us a taste of the Lo-Fi, fast paced persistence of Gravez. Accompanied by a technicolour video which displays all of the lively spontaneity of a young, thirsty band, Gravez much like their last release Tosta Mista is demanding to be on every DJ’s playlist across the country.
As a nominee for Canada’s answer to the Mercury Music Prize; The Polaris Prize, Hooded Fang are keeping up their punk laden pop style and dishing out another morsel of hot, sweet ‘n’ sour Canadian bacon. Lead in by heavy bass and then treated to distorted guitars with heavier still drums the only real relief comes in the break down; where we are treated to a few courtesy “buh, buh, buh, buh” before being thundered back into the song’s rhythm.
“So many faces and they’re all the same… why you lookin’ at me?
This track is fuelled by punk ethics with a pop tinge and like pop we’re sure it’s designed to rot our teeth and kill our brain cells. But, like pop, we love it.
