CLEAN BREAK: Self-titled: 7”

Clean Break is a snarling band from Faro, Portugal, and they’re a mix of sounds and sensibilities: straight edge done with a fast crust punk sound, at least to my ears. Although neither consistently nor overtly straight edge in the lyrical content, they seem to be more about the spirit rather than the specifics of the message. It reminds me a lot of early 7 Seconds meets Squalora. Well done, gents. Well done, indeed. –The Lord Kveldulfr (Refuse)
