Käptain Krünçh Kîdz - 2014 - #BloodBrothers

Käptain Krünçh Kîdz is a two piece band from Ozark, Missouri, USA. #BloodBrothers is their debut EP.  Käptain Krünçh Kîdz play a combination of emo and surf rock,  the wiry kind of emo that feels like it could fall apart at any moment rammed straight into melodic surf rock. And the results don't always work. The guitars are plenty noodly and twinkly but when the songs don't hit and the riffs aren't memorable song structure falls into that black noodly hole. When they hit, they really hit (Night Mare, Fall's End, Bloodshot Eyes And An Existential Crisis) otherwise the songs just wander around a little bit. There is much potential here and this album to it's detriment is very much front loaded. If Käptain Krünçh Kîdz continue down this path they should develop into something interesting, right now this diamond is very much in the rough. The edges are starting to glean but there's a lot of polishing that needs to be done.
