Li’l Biz just thrust this 7” in my face, asking “You wanna review the new single from Survival Knife? It’s ex-Unwound.” Well, I didn’t need asking twice, since those grungey ‘90s post-mo noisemongers were adolescent favourites of mine. It’s ace, too. The press release compares this new act to Drive Like Jehu, which I definitely see. There are punchy, angular riffs with stop-start dynamics and urgent, trebly vocals. B-side ‘Name That Tune’ has some great harmonising guitars that put a big smile on my face.
It’s chunky and loud and not a million miles away from a lot of the ‘90s-inspired bands doing the rounds now, in particular people like Metz, Cloud Nothings and Dope Body, but it’s heartwarming to see that some of the true originals are still out there making something this vigorous and fun. Heartily recommended.
