Up River - ‘If There Is A God That Is Judging Me Constantly’ Cover

If you like hardcore, you'll love this.

If there’s one thing that’s Up River’s forte, it’s cutting to the chase.

Between gnawing riffola and the embittered howl of frontman Harry Huntington, there’s precious little room to catch your breath here, over five tracks of lithe, claustrophobic, rubbed-raw hardcore.

Even better, there’s some genuinely compelling songwriting on offer, the breakneck turn of pace in ‘Deaf Waltz’ in particular more than enough to raise your pulse into the red zone.

Deeply uncool, resolutely unfashionable, but profoundly emotional: just like the best music of this sort should be.
