COMPOSITE: Artemisia: 7”EP

Aug 16, 2017

Dark/gothy punk is pretty much all I want to listen to these days and Oakland’s Composite is giving it to me in spades. Every aspect is so good—the guitars both swirl and riff, the vocals are some of the best and most consistent I’ve heard in a while, and the rhythm section does an excellent job of balancing between complementing what is happening and taking the spotlight when appropriate. Composite is a rare case in which the live show blows the already-great recording out of the water. I mean if you like post-punk or gothy stuff, this is almost certainly for you. –Nicole X (Self-released, [email protected])
