Monster Sounds: SoCal Hardcore Punk Band Urgency Demo Music Release
“Always over thinking
what others see
Just keep your head clear
and know yourself is
who you need to be “
There are few things more appealing to my ears than hardcore punk delivered at the highest speed possible whilst backed by positive & life affirming lyrics. From the obnoxiously optimistic stylings of Youth Of Today, the vegetarian message behind many Gorilla Biscuits songs & the relentlessly introspective albums Have Heart released, Hardcore is a genre that has constantly affirmed itself (in part) with a positive & honest direction.
Urgency are no different, they sit nicely amongst this back catalogue of luminaries with music that is fast, passionate & altogether infectiously catchy. Hailing from Southern California I came across their music on Bandcamp and was hooked immediately, with hints of all the greatest Bridge 9 bands; Mental, Champion, No Warning etc their music is a rhythmic attack on assumptions & ego.
