Vic­tory/ De­feat In­de­pen­dent

Blunt - - In Review -

For a genre so keen to let you know about how pas­sion­ate and gen­uine they are, Aus­tralian hard­core usu­ally falls into two cat­e­gories: shit, or bad cookie-cut­ter shit. So of­ten we are sub­jected to the same dross, push up-wor­ship­ping Bro-core made fa­mous by the likes of Park­way Drive, I Killed The Prom Queen, North­lane and so on – per­haps un­til now. Syd­ney Hard­core may have found its saviour in new­com­ers Griz­zly Adams. While other bands are co­or­di­nat­ing their wardrobes, the quar­tet are writ­ing some hon­est, De­feater-es­que, feelingin­duc­ing hard­core. Taste­ful and dy­namic, al­though not with­out fault, the EP feels like the first sex­ual ex­plo­ration of young ado­les­cent love: some­times awk­ward and a lit­tle painful, some­times right on the money, but still kickarse be­cause you’ve got your hands down your girl­friend’s pants while her dad is in the kitchen.
