Listen: Corners – Pressure

a2994306578_10

I’ve always been interested in the crossover between surf punk, garage and post-punk – but definitely not in that order. Corners is Tracy Bryant, Billy Changer and Rick Mabery from Los Angeles, California. They’ve more or less been around since 2012, when they self-released their first album (and release) “Beyond Way“, which was later on picked up by Lolipop Records and re-released in the same format – namely a cassette, but this time; rather limited. In August last year they released a 7¨ titled “My Baby” which featured the two songs “My Baby” and “Automatic Man“, which were two completely new tracks in their repertoire. Per usual, Lolipop Records released it. Since I didn’t know very much about them until I read more about them, and found them via Bandcamp, they’re actually releasing a new record – which is a split together with Dirt Dress, a band which differs a bit from themselves, but can be counted into the punk-category. They’ve also been around longer. So therefore, I would like to present the track “Pressure” for you, to listen to. There’s both a hollow line between surf punk and its rather energized tempo, and the more callous and dark post-punk, in comparison with the regular garage-rock sounding vocals. Surely, there’s a lot of common ground between the genres, but also uncommon. However, it sounds great and is pretty much what you’d expect with that combination, which makes it worthwhile to listen to. So I urge you to stream the track down below and check Corners out, as well as Dirt Dress.
