The Punks Have Invaded: Five Punk Bands Worth Seeing at SXSW 2019

 Populism is on the rise, repressive governments act with impunity and the wealth gap steadily widens, but punks across the globe are still channeling their discontent and rage into music that is worth a listen. Punk has so many permutations these days that nailing down the sound is a fool's errand, but luckily at SXSW, we get to imbibe it all in one week. So we've compiled five international groups that are going to make the end of the world, a party worth going too. 

 

 

Amyl & The Sniffers (AUS) 

An explosive punk band from Melbourne, Amyl and the Sniffers quickly developed a reputation for their unhinged live performances, in which manic lead singer Amy Taylor can often be seen crowd surfing or climbing up the walls. 

 

Otoboke Beaver (JAP) 

 A punk-rock-garage quartet from Kyoto, their off-kilter self taught compositional and confrontational performance skills, together with the band's incredible musicianship make for a thrilling and unmissable live act.

 

Drinking Boys & Girls Choir (KOR) 

Drinking Boys and Girls Choir are a skate-punk trio from Daegu City that sing in Korean and English, making for a dynamic sonic range embracing melodic hardcore, pop-punk and indie rock. Their songs tackle unreasonable government, police power and the corruption of Park Geun-hye's government.

 

Nancy (UK)

The enigmatic songwriter was raised in subdued North East England and not unlike many others, Nancy dressed & acted in ways that seemed out-of-the-ordinary. Combined with androgynous and abnormal physical features, “Nancy” was both a punchline &label throughout the songwriter’s formative years

 

Psychedelic Porn Crumpet (AUS)

Take the trail out of Perth via Leederville and keep on driving, and you might just stumble across an old horse shed – one where weirdness roams free. Across the bridge from said shed, house parties rage until the early hours and beyond, while around the corner there’s a sky-high pile of trash that acts as a makeshift home for the local rat population. It’s here, amongst jam sessions that would last six-hours plus, that the wacky, sprawling sound of Psychedelic Porn Crumpets was born.

Get Lost in the Apathy of Soft Kill

Punishing isn’t the first word you’d think to describe Soft Kill, an official SXSW artist, but the more their gothic barrages of post-punk and shoegaze pummel into you, the apter the label becomes. On Savior, the Portland-based outfit buries most of their synthesizers into a thundering vessel of fuzz and shadowy guitars. Like streetlights quickly appearing and vanishing again as you drive past them, moments of joy appear only to get smothered in a wave of rumbling toms and a peal of crashing cymbals. It’s a relentless hail of gloom and doom, something akin to The Cure without reveling in any of the performative aesthetics of goth music; Soft Kill is purely here for the raw ennui.

Noise Pop Showcase: Rex Ruit at the Starline February 28th

We’re happy to report that Oakland’s own Rex Ruit will be playing at The Starline Social Club this Thursday the 28th as part of Noise Pop. Tracks like “Vertigo” and “South” give this rocky post-punk album a lighter feel. Lovely guitar melodies blend with vocals that come in and out of clarity and really push this album into an almost dream-pop beachy realm while still keeping that alternative feel the band is known for. They’ll be part of a pretty killer lineup: Black Marble, Spiritual Cramp and Shutups at one of our favorite venues. -Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor
