DOUBLE VISION: Cold Comfort: 7”

Long sleeves, gym shorts, singalongs, straight edge, being fucking posi, loving Youth Of Today, gang vocals, mosh lanes, crew cuts, New Balance. Do these things describe the whole of Polish youth? I hope so, because these guys make me feel like they should. This record reminds me of my youth and hardcore from the late ‘90s/early ‘00s in a way that doesn’t make me want to throw up all over myself. The songs are tight, the production is sparse, the lyrics talk about forgetting shitty friends, hanging out with good friends, and being cooler than everybody. These guys probably have more fun than you. This kind of music is like the garage rock of my generation; it’s just four kids playing a few chords in the basement because it’s fun and just playing music to their friends. I smiled all the way through this thing and immediately called my friends to tell them about this band. Highest recommendations for fans of the style or just people who remember when this kind of music wasn’t nearly as fun as these kids are having.
