Attack The Day released their 5 track EP Felons in April and launched it with a gig on May 20th.  Felons is 17 minutes of varying genres; they flit between grunge, punk, alternative metal, with vocals leaning on the post-hardcore side of things. But they manage this without sounding too disjointed or overwhelming. The snarly vocals are drenched in attitude and passion. The guitars solidify the EP and tie everything together, and there’s a few enjoyable guitar solos dotted around the place.

Bitch Falcon – Sea Sessions

As we headed back to Sea Sessions’ small yet vibrant campsite Saturday evening, after a well needed nap and take-away, we arrived just in time to witness the earth rumbling twang of heavy bass at the fingertips of Naomi Macleod, the joining rising tones of Lizzie Fitzpatrick’s guitar and Nigel Kenny’s drums and the turning of heads in “What the fuck was that!?” response. That, boys and girls, was the start of Bitch Falcon‘s set on the North Shore stage.

Fangclub at Sea Sessions

If you’re unfamiliar with Fangclub they basically sound like if Weezer tried to make a grunge album in the 90’s but couldn’t quite get rid of their underlying Weezer-yness.
