CLOAK DAGGER: “Surf Song” b/w “Concentration Camps”: 7”

Jul 03, 2009

A kickin’ intersection of melodic hardcore and streetpunk. I bet they rip it live. The A-side is quite a feat—it’s not a song so much as a collection of hooks in rapid succession. On the downside, I’m getting a “style over substance” vibe here, like maybe these guys shop at Urban Outfitters and “just wanna rock.” It’s on Jade Tree and there’re only two songs. The lack of a lyric sheet doesn’t help, neither does the fact that the B-side is called “Concentration Camps” and, from what I can make out, it’s about girls. That’s in really poor taste, dudes.
