XETAS: “The Silence” b/w “The Knife”: 7”

Two-song 7” about suicide. Side A, “The Silence,” is a melodic post-punk jam with hardcore group vocals. Side B, “The Knife,” has even more melody and group singalongs. Standard “punk” sound, but they’ve got good energy. I liked this a lot more than I thought I would.
