A two song sampler from Vancouver, BC punk band NEEDS is going for Adds today. The songs are off their forthcoming self-titled album due out in May on File Under: Music. First track “We Forgot the Records to Our Record Release Show” is a no frills hardcore punk song. “The Only Good Condo is a Dead Condo” is a rally call against gentrification, mixing frontman Sean Orr‘s disdain for socioeconomic struggles with a sharp cynicism. NEEDS‘ music is a furious mix of post-hardcore, noise punk, and garage rock – fueled by the perfect mix of reckless abandonment and tongue-in-cheek intelligence. The band will be out in Austin for SXSW next week. Contact us to interview the band.
“…A blast of frenetic energy that can only come out of riding that fine line between frustration and despair.”
“There’s something invigorating about this band that’s difficult to convey without listening to them—it’s a genuineness that most punk bands have abandoned”.
