Thirty Six Strategies might contain a number of stalwarts from the U.K. hardcore scene but this isn’t tough guy music, as there is a relaxed and melodic outlook that sits at its core. With new vocalist Marie Vockins firmly settled front and center, she frequently acts as a siren distracting me from all else that is going on with her wonderfully gritty and soulful voice. Then suddenly I’m snapped back from my reverie by the rest of the band rocking out in way that makes me think of Hammerbox, given the guitar work and agile rhythm section. Great stuff.
