Abandoncy play riffs like they don’t want to live. Tearing massive holes through the thick humidity of “Nashville Hot’s” the Kansas City trio play ascendant and reckless Noise Punk – turning and twisting through angular chord changes and fist-in-the-air choruses. Prominent comparisons include classic skronkers Drive Like Jehu and Unwound, but contempories would include bands like METZ, Hissing Tiles and Protomartyr. An excellent bridge marks the song’s atmospheric middle passage where ragged vocals meet in the air with ambient synths before crashing back to earth as riff after pummeling riff remind us that we aren’t meant to escape these bodies. “Nashville Hot” is the first single off of the album Hollow // Living out August 21st on Zegema Beach and The Ghost is Clear Records.
