Optic Nerve - Crash


  Optic Nerve are from Sydney and introduced themselves a couple of years ago with a rough and ragged Self Titled demo cassette. They returned earlier this month with a follow up ep titled In A Fast Car Waving Goodbye. 

  The band have certainly been influenced by 80's US hardcore and you can't help thinking that the vocalist has been listening to plenty of Hank Wood and the Hammerheads. I can't find much info on them to share so will just recommend that you check out the ep on their Bandcamp (4 songs are streaming, there's also a hidden bonus track which is on the cassette which is on Urge Records)... 

  This is the opening track and my favourite. The guitars are choppy and frantic, the drums barrel along at pace and the vocals are punchy and expelled with great gusto. The song's called Crash...
