FUCKEMOS: w.a.g.p.s.g?: 7”

Aug 25, 2016

The name alone was enough to make me roll my eyes, but it definitely set me up to be surprised. Who knows? This might be my new favorite band. I couldn’t have been more wrong (and confused). FuckEmos is a parody band – I think. The songs are a fusion of electronic bleeps and bloops and robotic vocals that are pitched down to sub-bass levels; I adjusted the speed of my record player countless times and the singing was always unintelligible. I don’t find FuckEmos’ schtick funny, and a band that describes themselves as “retard pUNK mETAL pop” just isn’t my thing. –Sean Arenas (Slope, sloperecords.com)
