Another Number from Half Forward Line
The first track we heard from Half Forward Line (the new project from So Cow/Oh Boland members) you got what you wanted, or expected: a solid power pop outing that soothed. But, on the flipside comes their powerful new single, employing buzzsaw guitars and a pummeling pace that creates instant fury. The call and response vocals are forceful, providing a larger “punk” vibe than we figured, especially when they turn to a fading growl in your speakers. When the band formed, they promised each other to record and write as quickly as possible (2 days!), leaving us with The Back of Mass album; it’s a diverse listen influenced by the individual tastes of the 3 members…and it’s now available through Jigsaw Records.
