Audacity - Finders Keepers

Single review by

It's been a few months since we last featured US west-coast garage-punks Audacity and if you liked the organised chaos of the previous album and free download track 'Garza Girls' then we're happy to tell you that not much has changed in terms of their sound. New single 'Finders Keepers' is being released on April 2nd as part of the Suicide Squeeze singles club, so get your orders in. There's always been a side to the band that deviates from straight-ahead garage and punk that many others favour and although the sound isn't new they're not being purposefully retro, it's more just a case of manning the instruments and getting the hell on with it.

And so 'Finders Keepers' starts with a typically jagged riff that's complimented by plenty of melody, simple melody but it works all the same and gives them that extra versatility, perhaps marking them down as descendants of the New York Dolls as much as the spit and snot punk bands that came later. They're aiming for fun but doing so without even the merest thought of adding a novelty aspect to the song. Really you can call this song any number of names but the most basic of phrases for this most simply thrilling tune is ragged and passionate rock 'n' roll mayhem. And with a band of this nature, what more can you ask for?
