Listen to Crooked Bangs’ Track “No Future”


Listen to Crooked Bangs’ Track “No Future”.

Crooked Bangs play an incendiary brand of brooding punk on their track “No Future” off the band’s LP II out today on Nervous Intent Records. The trio is comprised of singer/bassist Leda Ginestra, guitarist Samantha Wendel, and drummer Phillip Gonzales. The new effort is a follow-up to their self-titled 2012 LP out on Western Medical Records. According to the band, they scrapped their initial recordings for II in an effort to get a more immediate and raw sound. Towards this end, they enlisted the help of recording engineer Ian Rundell (Ghetto Ghouls), and the record was mastered at Enormous Door by Jack Control (Severed Head of State).

If the goal was to capture the trio’s live energy, then mission accomplished! “No Future” barrels out of the gate at a headlong pace, and it finds vocalist Leda Ginestra barking vocals in French and English with venomous intent. Her bass underpins the sound with roiling and grungy low-end while Gonzales pummels the kit with spastic abandon. Meanwhile, Samantha Wendel’s guitar churns out a plague-toned racket setting everything ablaze with rambunctious malice.

If you live in Austin, TX, don’t miss the Crooked Bangs’ album release show on April 27th at Beerland. In addition, the band will head out for a string of West Coast dates beginning in May. You can check out their tour schedule after the Soundcloud embed below…
