“This trio is jacked-in and jacked up as usual, and sound even more hyper and ready to start the revolution this time around. The first single, “Disobey,” is a real rallying cry towards that purpose with its title chanted in the chorus and declarations of ” I feel like fucking with it all” while guitars roar and synths swirl around you. It’s a rad first taste…” -BrooklynVegan
POW! have announced their new LP Shift and have shared the new single “Disobey” on BrooklynVegan. The LP will be out 5/10 on Castle Face Records.
Announcing POW!’s latest LP, Shift:
Just when we thought we knew what to expect from POW! they surprise us with a vigorous and rabid LPs worth of moody cybernetic punk that’s frankly their best yet. Their 4th is oil-dipped in a rainbowed slick of dread, yet the songs are buoyed by tight tunes that seem to have a lot of fun among the ruins of the future, dare I say with an eye to a less gloomy horizon? Melissa Blue’s sharp-elbowed synths jostle with Byron Blum’s zap-gun guitar in an ominous fog of oscillations, and yet somehow my toe is a-tapping. POW! got darker and more catchy at the same time, for which some credit is due to the excellent drumming of Cameron Allen and the fantastically future savvy production by Byron Blum & Tomas Dolas. Lots of sticky punk heart resin-layered in a futuristic-scanning bionic bop. For fans of Solid Space, Tubeway Army, The Units, The Screamers, and glittery black nail polish. It’s out on Castle Face May 10th
