Released: 08.03.24







Ghlow’s Big City opens this album with blistering dissonance and monotone vocals that spear into your very soul; it’s an eye-opening start to their second LP, which is fairly relentless throughout and further embeds the Sweden-based PNKSLM as one of the go-to labels for hard edged 21st Century punk rock in its myriad forms.

The title track has a distinct artfulness that portrays rumbling anger with incessant threatening riffs followed by a ruthlessly raucous Bring It Down. Stand-out track from a gloriously noisy collection for me is Golden, which revs it up like an out of control nihilist punk hot rod, flaming road kill in its wake. Do I hear ‘motorik punk classic’? Why yes I do!
