Selby Tigers

Sidewalk b/w Gene Pool

Hopeless

Short but sweet, new wave-stained pop punk screaming out through the two songs on this too-short single. Just the power and energy, and maybe something in the delivery, brings to mind the Buzzcocks, but there’s a nagging undertone that makes me think of Alec Eiffel-era Pixies. Maybe it’s just my head buzzing like a wind tunnel. The b-side kicks it a bit faster, throwing in some female vocals and a little of guitar chaos. Sending the sound a bit harder into the ’90s, but it’s still buzzing in my brain.

Screen Reviews

The fact that the band Slaves to Sirens exists is impressive, but that they live, love, and breathe to play metal takes things to another level. Sirens documents the journey. Review by Charles DJ Deppner.
