One of the big hits with the folk in the chatroom on last night's Just Some Punk Songs show was the 2nd single by a new power pop/punk band from Montreal called The High Kinks (https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100087370122295).
They're a quartet made up of Flo The Action (Lead Vocals/Guitar), Suspicious Dave (Guitar/Backing vocals), Emma (Bass/Backing vocals) & Joey Anxiety (Drums). They introduced themselves at the tail end of last year with a debut single featuring the songs ADHD and Regrets. Impressive and catchy it suggested we had a great prospect on out hands.
That initial assessment has been confirmed by the release of the new single. 2 More tracks both of which will rock your socks off. You can pick out influences from throughout the entire history of the genre, think The Clash, Exploding Hearts, The Cry, Tommy And The Commies and many more. The best thing about The High Kinks, they don't pale in comparison to those bands.
You can get both singles from Bandcamp : https://thehighkinks.bandcamp.com/album/safe-american-home-ep
I'm very much looking forward to hearing more.
This track's called Safe American Home...
