I feel like I needed a solid kick in the ass this morning, something to get me up out of my own way and jumpstart the day…so here I am with the latest single from Skux. It’s a grungy little rocker, blasting out its energy from the get-go; it’s all guitars and drums just driving you furiously towards an unknown end. All that energy and fury seems fitting for a song about the end of a relationship, but what’s special is what Ayisha Jaffer’s voice offers in its performance. Jaffer has this controlled howl that hides the faintest pop sensibility, which ends up bringing some calm over the verses and choruses. The band will release the Kudis EP on August 23rd.
