Today Girl Tears hit us with their new single “Panic Attack” from forthcoming album Woke Against The Tide that drops next week via Sinderlyn (home to Cymbals Eat Guitars, Fresh & Onlys, Homeshake). FLOOD debuted “Panic Attack” describing their sound, “semi-twanged swagger of X, but matched by the concentrated brevity of early Black Flag.” LISTEN “PANIC ATTACK” VIA SOUNDCLOUD
Walk Against The Tide is the the LA /OC punk trio’s follow up to Tension. With it they have has mastered the art of the three-chord attack, delivering volatile blasts to the point of fury. Four tours and 100+ shows later, playing art spaces, houses, DiY venues, bars, barns, backyards, basements, and everything in between, Girl Tears has delivered a natural, confident progression from their debut.
Woke Against The Tide wrestles with themes of Love/Hate, Good/Evil – and in particular – the space between these polarizing ideas. There are hooks, melody and structure, but also a bit of chaos built on a more complex arrangement that’s constantly shifting and evolving, much like the band themselves.
