Once you turn onto Y Street, you won’t be able to do a u-turn.
The Melbourne five-piece rock-infused PUNC (with a c because it’s cooler) band make an impact on their debut EP Get Lost, showing how their energetic live show translates to disc.
Accelerating into the four-track EP is the single ‘Get Lost’. This moshpit ready track has all of the right ingredients for an anthem; the repetitive chant of the chorus, the driving guitar, the jumping drum beats and the dancing bass lines.
That bass comes to the forefront in ‘Free My Mind’. Taking notes from The Delta Riggs on this track, the boys explore a more melodic side which they hold onto for the follow-up opening for mindbender- ‘Plastic Mind’. This track, however, takes a turn to resemble a classic King Gizzard and the Wizard gem minus the psychedelic frenzy.
The punchy 4/4 pocket of power, ‘Robbos Riff’, rounds out the EP keeping the strength of the collection in check.
There are no potholes and no speed bumps on this road, only the smoothest ride with a bit of throttle.
