Longings - 2013 - Demo

Longings are a three piece punk band from Amherst, Massachusets, America. Demo is their debut recording. Longings consist of Will Killingsworth, Meghan Minior and Cole Turkee who collectively have been in: Vaccine, Failures, Ampere, Orchid, Bucket Full of Teeth, Siamese Twins, Ampere, Death Evocation, Foreign Objects, Twerps, SKVLT and California X. Longings play a fuzzy, dark brand of post punk that isn't afraid of kicking up a noisy, hardcore storm. All of these songs attempt to the storm the gate with their dark, atmospheric post-punk. The only constant is the churning of the drums as these songs drive endlessly forward. If Bootblacks were more influenced by hardcore they might play something like this. If you like your punk in a darkened atmosphere with multiple vocalists Longings' Demo will do well.
