SURRENDER: Paper Thrones: LP

Feb 26, 2009

Political-minded punk rock from the Bay Area. It’s melodic and tuneful in execution. A bit like a mellow Signal Lost. The dual vocals work well with each other. Instead of grunting or growling, they actually sing, and sometimes speak the lyrics. They stay away from clichéd sloganeering, and instead offer poetic viewpoints to war, manipulation, sexism, and a list of other worldly ills. The opening song is a little dramatic, but, on the whole, this is not bad and a welcome change from the usual in this genre.
