The Over Everythings No Solidarity
I am in a quandry with this review. I’m torn between being speechless and word vomiting superlatives at a blistering pace. I guess you could say I’m smitten with Hannah, the young heroine of No Solidarity‘s epic tale of disillusionment in modern times.
The Over Everythings are a melodic skate punk band out of the UK, and with this album they are about to jump right onto a lot of peoples’ musical radar. The first thing you are going to notice is the musicianship. These guys are the epitome of smart skate punk. The guitars shred. The rhythm section is thundering. Together they are an inescapable ear catching force. If there were no lyrics at all, you could throw this album on as a straight up instrumental skate/work out/biking soundtrack and be perfectly happy. But these guys went far further….
No Solidarity is the story of Hannah, a young woman searching for the best in this life and finds the modern world lacking. The story is matched perfectly with the music. I find myself listening repeatedly and finding something new each time. The emotional content and delivery have me stumped as to recommending any one track as my favorite. I’m just going to say that if you enjoy intelligent lyrics, and talented musicianship that you should get on this one right away. It’s something you are going to be listening to for years to come, and still will be finding new things to enjoy about it.
No Solidarity comes out July 14th on Scylla Records. Click the link below to grab an album that, in my opinion, will be on most reviewers and critics top 10 lists at the end of the year.
