OTZI: “Gong Show” b/w “Sunbeam”: 7”

Here’s a rad, new darkwave band from Oakland, Calif. “Gong Show” has a tribal and minimal feel that brings back memories of Heart Of Snow and Arctic Flowers. The flipside, “Sunbeam,” is a great track that gets brighter, with more melodic guitars and chorus added to the bass. Fans of darker punk need to check this out. I can’t wait to hear more from this band. –Ryan Nichols (Long Way To Go, [email protected])
