Mindz Eye – “True Blue” 7″
A modern hardcore-punk band from Colorado, with groove-lead riffs and a cool balance between melody and toughed-up fustration. I read in the bio: “for fans of Turnstile, Higher Power, and Title Fight”… I don’t really feel that is very accurate, but sure, it does send you in the right direction… add a bit of Ekulu maybe, (minus the NY vibe). And, yeah, there are a couple of Turnstile-esque guitar licks (but Higher Power? Come on, that band is just a weak Turnstile rip-off, right?). What I mean is that these guys, while not exactly groundbreaking, have managed to hit on their own unique sound, and they’ve caught my attention, sure enough… One hit/7” wonders, or the next big thing – time will tell.
