Californian punk heavyweights, Trash n Privilege, are back on maniacal form in their latest EP, Wrong Again…Brah, featuring the juggernaut of a standout single, Flooded.
With guitar riffs that would make John Dwyer weak at the knees, gnarled feral basslines, percussion that affirms Trash n Privilege as an unfuckwithably cool powerhouse, Flooded is a breeding ground of tempestuous hardcore punk catharsis that pays homage to punk pioneers.
Every track on the EP finds a new way to attack societal hypocrisy – the kind of hypocrisy that breaks into powerless frustration. It’s a subversive shift from the narrative that punk rock will save the world, a well overdue one. As Against Me! already pointed out, the revolution was a lie; what will always be real is the vindication from empathetically scathing acts like Trash n Privilege.
Flooded is now available to stream on Spotify.
