With raw vocals and frantic instrumentation that forever threatens to break out of its measured restraint, ‘Shellshock’ is a three minute slice of shouty pop punk that treads the line between craft and chaos. The world would be a better place if all bands could use energy and enthusiam with such a sure hand. Sirs show that controlled does not have to mean flat.

The Sirs EP is out on Double Double Whammy, and also available on Bandcamp.
