SOMETHING’S WRONG: “Spring Again” b/w “Ghostbike” and “Mama Said”: 7”EP

Have you ever had a panic attack? Like you just can’t quite catch up to what’s happening, heart racing, and short of breath. Compared to the split Something’s Wrong did with The Shorebirds, the song on the A-side sounds like a panic attack. I’m not quite sure if I like it or not. It makes me very anxious for some reason. The two songs on the B-side sound more settled, breathing into a paper bag to stop the racing, and on top of their own music. If you’re a fan of gritty DIY punk with dual female/male vocals along a roughed-up Fifth Hour Hero, a gruffer God Equals Genocide, or a less hardcore Harum Scarum, Something Wrong should be on your “to find” list. Solid stuff. Can’t wait to hear more.
