So, this is great. Meat Wave are from Chicago and have released several albums now of melodic punk/hardcore/alt rock music. They’re a pretty uncompromising band, remind me a little bit of Husker Du.
‘That’s Alright’ sounds to me like a cross between Queens of the Stone Age and early Cure. It starts with a slightly off kilter, off beat Josh Hommesque rhythm, but then switches up into a more 80’s indie sounding chorus. Slightly gothic and industrial. It’s all pretty much right up my street. And it’s all pretty cool. Perfect for a cold December Tuesday morning.
