NAUGHTY GIRLS: Bad Habits: 7”

Canadian punk hardcore which, at times, reminds me of Blood Guts and Pussy-era Dwarves if you take away all of the lyrical content of fucking and doing drugs and replace it with “introspective” lyrics about drinking, working, and living. Montreal and Toronto seem to have a great up-and-coming scene for punk and hardcore bands, led by bands like Brutal Knights, Career Suicide, and Omegas, and Naughty Girls fit in with all of these bands perfectly.
