HIGHWAY CROSS: Locked In: 7”

Highway Cross play a muscular and musically varied version of modern hardcore, and they’re really good at it. At first I thought that this record sounded like a lot of others that I’ve heard recently (in my head, the closest parallel is Stalwart Sons), but I’m finding something new and interesting to like about it with every subsequent listen. Perhaps a more appropriate analogy would be to say that Highway Cross sound like a less jazzy and more obnoxiously rockin’ version of Quicksand.
