FLATLINERS: Great Awake Demos: 7”

Jan 31, 2018

It’s another release in the Fat Wreck demo series from the band Flatliners. This is my first time hearing the band after hearing the name for many years. It’s much rawer than what I expected, sounding a lot like early Strike Anywhere, especially on “This Is Giving Up.” The other two songs stick with the Strike Anywhere vibe, but hints of influence from D4 and the entire roster of twenty-first century releases on this label can be heard as well. –Mike Frame (Fat Wreck)
