Unlike a small wild west town, Finland is big enough for the two of them: Selfish and Backlash. Two bands that play Japanese hardcore-style, crafted with intention and refined with expertise, creating some of the better punk songs of the last few years. And while Selfish is practically a household name in DIY punk, Backlash has remained under the radar, active for 10 years now but releasing only a single LP in 2012.
Here we have two smash hits that showcase Seve's impeccable songwriting skills. "Danger" is the ultimate anthemic mid-tempo sing-along that is a highlight of every live show. "Fight" could have been taken off Bet on the Possibility LP with its epic arrangements and Chelsea-influenced guitar solos. Music for the soul.
