POW! Share “Here It Comes” Track New LP Shift Out 5/10 On Castle Face Records

“Through the grit and the grime, there’s immensely catchy songwriting that understands its roots while simultaneously forward-thinking.”
– mxdwn“It’s (“Here It Comes”) stylish and confident future/primitive punk that sounds like the Screamers album Eno never produced, with sinister synth and Warm Jets weirdness in service of something that could well work as an oblique strategy.”
– L.A. Record

“Byron Blum’s guitars vomit twisted coils of wire and chromium tape. The drums are bounced through hammered cardboard and tin and the synths skitter across the headspace like feral androids, crouched and hissing.”
– Raven Sings The Blues

“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 shared their new single “Here It Comes”. The band recently announced their new LP Shift and shared the first 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
