COLA FREAKS: “Dødt Batteri” b/w “Nej!”: 7”

Nov 07, 2008

Wow! What the fuck? This is not what I thought this band sounded like. This is such a weird and pleasurable blend of raw Swedish assault hardcore and delicious Danish pop. It seems like there’s so much deconstruction going on here; I’m not even sure if this fits into a genre of music. Taking the most basic elements of punk, pop, and garage and mutilating them to pieces until it sounds like a band that formed in the basement of a mental institution. For fans of both Instäng and Gorilla Angreb; plus the rest of those great European bands, except I don’t feel like anyone in the Cola Freaks spends much time in the morning deciding which color beret they should wear.
