Listen: POWER – ‘SERPENT CITY’

powercs

Power is Melbourne-based three piece featuring members of established punk bands, Soma Coma, Leather Lickers, Gutter Gods and Dribble. If you know anything about Melbourne punk at the moment then you should know these bands.

‘Serpent City’ is a throwback, anthemic power rock song; meaty bass, speedy drums and chunky riffs. In a recent talk with Vice’s Noisey blog, vocalist Nathan Williams said the band tries to pay homage to “Australian hard rock/boogie, glam, heavy metal and Japanese psych” – all good things.

‘Serpent City’ is available as a cassingle through Cool Death Records. The band are writing and working on an album or 7”, whichever comes first. It will most likely come out on Cool Death Records as well. I’ll eat it up, for sure.
