NATTERERS: Demo 16: CS

A strong demo from this fledgling hardcore band hailing from the Northern reaches of England, which lays down a decent marker of its current ability and the potential contained therein. The anger pours from Emma’s mouth as she displays a multi-faceted vocal performance, providing a strong presence within songs which race along at a good clip. Musically, it’s more than just bluster, though, as it’s as much about making use of a decent tune as it is about just barrelling along. It took me some time to figure out but there’s more than a bit of Night Birds influence going on in the songs too, especially from the guitar, which is mighty fine with me. –Rich Cocksedge (Self-released, natterers.bandcamp.com)
