Sheer MagStatic Shock
Released: 23rd March 2016
Wake up people! Sheer Mag's next salvo in the midst of global adulation may, may, be their greatest to date. Following a world tour in 2015, the Philly punks returned home and went straight to the studio to wax another 4 bullets of high-fire, crunchy, righteous rock and rolling thunder. Lead track Can't Stop Fighting is an instant Sheer Mag classic: incredible guitar hook curling around power-pop chords to die for before Christina Halliday's towering vocal bursts through with a klaxon call aimed straight between the eyes of global patriarchy. Who else can write a big rock tune about swatting away catcalls and disrupting the male gaze?
If this is a bell-weather for the rest of the E.P., III is in contention for 7" of the year just like II the year before it.
