Sounds Like: The hardcore howls of old school DC mounting a full-on invasion of the top of the mid 90’s rock charts.
Why You Should Care: DC’s music scene doesn’t end at the river, and this four piece from McLean, VA aims to make sure that fact is heard loud…very loud…and clear.
“Eye For An Eye” matches guttural hardcore howls with thunder-god worthy drums but quickly subverts that formula with shimmering slide guitar. It’s a subtle bait and switch, yet it tells you everything you need to know about Static Scene’s music. Unabashedly rooted in what came before, they aren’t afraid to explore sounds that don’t always fit together, regardless of the “scene” or genre. More importantly though, wherever their muse leads they aren’t afraid to follow it loudly and from the heart.
Static Scene’s self-titled EP comes out next Tuesday (7/22) via Say-10 Records. Can’t wait till then? Snag your copy early AND have your face rocked at their CD release show THIS FRIDAY at Epicure Café in Fairfax, VA.
