Big Ups – Goes Black [Brooklyn, US]

Noise / Punk / Rock
“I think I lost a bit of myself back there” is the final exasperated line from Wake Up opener Hard to Care after a relentless explosion of screaming guitars and drums. When considering the subject matter of latest single from upcoming full length (set to drop October 8th), Goes Black, it was easy to lose a bit of myself as well. Being tossed between spoken word meditations on the kind of ennui that infiltrates at the most inconvenient, darkest hours of the night and shredded vocals racing against whining guitars running in fear from the idea of “what happens when it all goes black?” It’s 2-minutes of sheer terror. But fortunately that foreboding, slow-paced intro before the fury of the song, makes the engulfing adrenaline-pumping energy crashing down all around you that much more thrilling–and so worth the ride.
