Raw Blow are capable of producing prettier compositions, a claim evidenced by the snippets of haunting melodies woven deep into the brutal fabric of the outfit’s latest single “Don’t Try.” However, this band, bred by a decade of underground Boston bar brawls, has decided, simply, to offer no more than a taste of their captivating capabilities, opting rather to overwhelm it’s audience with a raging mish-mosh of pit churning anthems…and we’re just sort of fine with that.
“Don’t Try” is 81 seconds of scorched earth policy Punk-Rock with fleeting moments of beauty to trap the listener before the musical decimation commences. Stream the Raw Blow single below, as well as a bonus cut of “Slow Choke”, in preparation for outfit’s forthcoming Slow Choke EP, which is scheduled to drop on October 28th via Birmingham, Alabama’s Social Cancer Records.
And if the record tickles your fancy, be sure to catch Raw Blow live when they head to Brooklyn’s favorite house of DIY Rock Shea Stadium on November 23rd with Sneeze.
