Just two years after their debut, how will the Aussie hardcore mob's second effort fare?
Wasting little time since their formation two years ago, Sydney’s Hellions return to follow up to ’13 debut ‘Die Young’ with ‘Indian Summer’. The opening abrasion of ‘Hellions’, which features JJ Peters and Matt ‘Real Bad’ Rogers of Deez Nuts, is a confrontational, high-octane blast from the trio’s hardcore roots, setting the tone for the likes of ‘Ghoul’ and ‘Comedy Of Errors’. Elsewhere, Hellions demonstrate punk rock melodicism and a more composed air of chaos on ‘Nottingham’ and ‘23’. They may seem like they’re running before they can walk, but ‘Indian Summer’ quashes any doubts about their maturity.
