PINKO ‘You & You’

Swift body blows to the unsuspecting listener

You & You is a punk rock release which has garnered a burgeoning level of praise during its short lifetime. In contrast, there’s no slow burn about the album. Initial listens sound like a hotchpotch of archetypal straight edge and contemporary styles. Then, with repeated listens, the textures merge and the hooks do their work. Playing as if on the edge of some impending doom, the three piece from San Antonio, Texas, are impassioned, and throw some swift body blows to the unsuspecting listener. They might also have you checking the credits for Guy Picciotto’s name as a similar trebly croon is never far away. The Fugazi comparisons don’t end there, but that’s never a bad thing, right? We’d also throw Jesus Lizard and Brainiac in for good measure to this adrenaline fuelled gem.
