SUNSHINE SS: Teen Choices: EP

Here’s some decent hardcore punk that falls somewhere in between Black Flag and Murder Suicide Pact. Mid-tempo approach to let the power in the riffs stand strong instead of getting lost a blur. The first couple songs are so-so, but they hit their stride and keep it constant from “Teen Choices” on to “Another Day, Another Dolor.” The tension from the bass at the beginning of “Pillow Talk” is killer and really hints at what these guys are capable of. The way the song switches from riff to riff and back is great. Pulls you in and throws you around before spinning you into the last couple songs. There’s some good stuff on here, and I get the sense they have better days ahead. Looking forward to hearing how they develop.
