RIYL: Parquet Courts, Fontaines D.C., Shame


Over the course of the last 4 years, Vintage Crop has propelled themselves at the front of the Australian punk scene and released two albums in the process, 2017’s TV Organs and 2018’s New Age. Both full-lengths bleed with danceable post-punk energy in the vein of Wire and Gang of Four, a sound captured by other contemporaries like Fontaines D.C. and Parquet Courts. Vocals are spoken or shouted, bass licks are punchy and staccato and the guitar leads are jagged and razor sharp.

On their third record Serve to Serve Again, the boys are honing in on their songwriting and sharpening their chosen weapons.  First single Gridlock shows off their hard work, a positively addicting piece of club punk weirdness that could turn any dance floor into a blood bath. Check it out below and grab a copy of the wax after the ‘buy’ link. 100 copies on orange, 200 on black.
