DIMBER: Sons and Daughters: 7”

Okay, is there anyone else in L.A. doing high energy, aggressively politically conscious pop punk that traverses dark emotional pop and classic punk with relentless undertones of hope? Building on the energy laid in their debut Damber, Dimber’s Sons and Daughters is more brooding and melodramatic, familiar in Pavlovian ways for those with the embodied vocabulary to decode it. Leads are complex and tasteful; lyrics poetic, real, and raw. Frontwoman CJ doesn’t need to scream for the severity of “though I try to hide they always find me, how do they always find me” to land like a fucking jackknife. Absolutely beautiful. –Candace Hansen (Chain Letter Collective)
