This Is A Standoff - Be Delighted Cover

Remember how ace punk rock used to be? TIASO certainly do...

Remember when punk bands played fast? When skateboarding and circle-pitting were more important than the brand of jeans you were sporting? Tuneful Canadians This Is A Standoff certainly do, because ‘Be Delighted’ is stuck in a permanent 1998, and it is all the better for it. Strong melodies, racing tempos and satisfyingly technical riffery dominate, as the band sprint their way through smart, engaging songs which speak from the heart, dealing in personal experience rather than meaningless vagaries. With the entire EP blazing past in just 15 minutes, blinking is out of the question; you can’t afford to miss this.
