Soulside – “This Ship” 7″
The first new music from Soulside since their third full-length back in 1989. These tracks were recorded at Jamor Studio in Prague during a brief run of European shows in the autumn of 2019. The 7″ contains 2 songs, but comes with a download for a third. All these decades later, instantly recognisable as Soulside, maybe less hardcore (think Girls Against Boys), but with Bobby Sullivan’s distinct vocals and lyrical subject matter much the same as before, backed by that same guitar-rhythm fusion that made Hot Bodi-Gram such a post hardcore classic. The third track, the download-only one, is especially saucy – reminds me of the Strokes, (in a good way).
