PREEN’s s/t EP is a glorious punch dance of angsty rage
Tailing last year’s release of keystoner, Philly punk rock four-piecePREEN recently released a s/t EP on Bandcamp, which shows the crew trading in sounds of all-around fuzziness for an even more vamped up, clarified dose of angstiness.
After a brief fake-out of silence, opening track “Cereus” starts the EP off kicking and screaming; where searing guitars and vocals morph together in an almost indistinguishable array. A torrent of taunts and labels, “Wyd” holds absolutely nothing back, anchored by the twisted sing-song line, “you’re a f**cking poser, I’m a f**cking slut,” and “chug” evokes an image of the most insane kind of basement show mosh pit.
Keystoner track, “don’t tell me to hang in there,” gets a resurrection here. Serving of the lyric-heaviest of the bunch, short, clipped lines slam images at you like an adamant audio View-master toy, with final track, “the bringer” providing pure head-nod heaven.
If you’re in need of a punch dance of rage, stream the s/t EP below for some majorly heated cathartic vibes. Then keep an eye out for some Philly gigs so you can jam in person.
