kmaAnother kick ass Dublin, Ireland band, Kiss My Acid, released their debut ep, Individuality, in September, 2015.  The 5 tracks are wonderfully powerful, with cool melodies, and dynamite changes. Exciting bass lines, and dynamite vocals enhance the blistering power chords. There are some cool vocal effects, and the drumming never lets up. There are no frills here. No bells and no whistles. Just cool songs filled with angst & anger. Hard driving, this is pure raw energy. Pure power punk! Favorite track: ‘Revolution’, with its cool vocals, nice changes & transitions, and an in your face vibe, could be a new punk anthem! Check it out here, and then buy yourself a copy. You won’t be sorry!

One Divided: The Boys Are Back!

Wonder what happened to in your face rock? It’s back with a vengeance, and its called One Divided,  Following the release of  their debut EP “One Divided” (2008),  the album “Shape Your Life” (2010), spawned two singles which received local radio play. The Oshawa, Ontario band’s new EP, “Good Reasons” demonstrates their growth as songwriters. The five tracks were written collaboratively by the three band members who share influences as diverse as Green Day, Sloan, Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Depeche Mode.onedivided

Start Again” opens the EP as a pop song with a sense of urgency, as the melody and harmonies pull you in. The subtle instrumentation of “All The Way” allows the vocals to be the focus and delivers a kick-ass ending. “Let It Go” has a punk/grunge edge to it and could be on any Green Day album.  The title track is as close to a ballad as One Divided can get, but then it takes on a new life as a straight ahead rock song. The hard driving “Retitled” is a crafty song that starts you out on a slow river cruise and then shoves you over the rapids. Matt Silver finally brings his guitar to life and while his vocals seem forced and strained, it works. Great song! Great EP!

The EP is under produced . It doesn’t matter. It works. What we get is a product that comes as close as possible to a One Divided live performance; a raw, in your face attack. Filled with flaws, it is One Divided. The songs are filled with energy. They have catchy melodies and tight harmonies. They make you want to tap your feet. Does there really have to be anything else?  One Divided will be at Sgt. Peppers in Ajax, Ontario performing at The Molson Canadian Live! Peppers Patio Tour on June 7, 2013.
