Diamond Youth - Shake Cover

"'Shake is a rollicking affirmation that hardcore dudes can be rather good at making straight-up rock music..."

Returning with their second EP in the space of 12 months, Diamond Youth once again sees members of Baltimore hardcore crew Trapped Under Ice fiddling with the lighter side of their repertoire. Alt-rock staples, leg-shaking basslines (‘Red Water’) and unsettling vocal melodies (‘Copy Cat’) are present and correct, while nods to Queens Of The Stone Age and other arena-filling heavy hitters bob in and out of sight throughout. If nothing else, this 15-minute blast of rough ‘n’ ready, unpretentious fun is a rollicking affirmation that hardcore dudes can be rather good at making straight-up rock music once they chill out a little.
