I don’t really write about or mention punk enough on these pages. But, this EP from German band Ataxie featuring three demos and one live track, will rectify that. Opener Jesus Christus is an addictive listen due to the voice of singer Lena.
Angst, as the title suggests, is in your face whilst Einbetoniert again draws the listener in thanks to the guitars those vocals once more. The live track Friede durch Hass has me wanting to bag a flight across to Germany to go and see them but, in these times of lock-down, blasting this EP through my headphones will suffice.
Punk isn’t just noise as these demos demonstrate. It can be catchy and melodic too.
