WRONG SOCIETY, THE: “Dark Clouds” b/w “Don’t Know Why”: 7”

Coming from the moodier side of Teenage Shutdown-style revival punk, Germany’s The Wrong Society clock in two infectious, mid-tempo slammers with their first American single. “Dark Clouds” describes the sound well: stormy melodies with an eerie synth hovering like the smell of lightning. “Don’t Know Why” has the same downcast feel with a catchy bass melody at the forefront. A solid release for fans of the Teenage Shutdown! or Back from the Grave compilations series. –Billups Allen (13 O’Clock)
