The third instalment of Smashed Vinyls Albums of the Year So Far... comes from Connar Ridd from the awesome band FREAK. The punk band from Essex have been making big splashes in the pool that is the British alternative scene since their release of recent EP What Happened and a very succesful support slot for FIDLAR.
Connar Ridd from FREAK – ‘Killer Brain Waves’ by Asylums (out 29th July)
This album is an absolute beast. Huge Nirvana-like riffs over catchy pop melodies, what’s not too like?! The whole things is about real stuff too that is going on right now.
It’s a hugely relevant album to modern day society and it’s all done in a way where you can’t stop singing the tunes too. Watch out for Monosylabic Saliva, The Death Of Television and Second Class Sex, those songs are monsters. All of the guys in Asylums are totally awesome as well. When this album drops, it will be mega. Sick band.
