Chorus Of One

Jade Tree

Upbeat and driving melodic punk that just gets your blood flowing. The vocals crack a little too much at times, the words you hear getting stuck in the back of your throat, but the dynamics behind the words keep everything heartbeat steady. A little Clash style guitar crunching against the rhythm section, and a little Fugazi thrown into the mix, sparingly and when needed. It’s angry and arousing, it’s political and musical. It screams at you, and then there’s a breath of just bass and drums, and you know you’re ready to fight for the music. A melodic call to arms, a battle cry of rhythm and discord. The cry of the backup vocals hit hard, and you’re right there with it.
