First up, Trust Punks are a punk band. It says so in their name. We’re off to a good start. Secondly, they’re from New Zealand. That place is a punk rock breeding ground, so all looks pretty great. Thirdly, they can’t spell drag, so strike three, and these guys are awesome.
Taking a listen to the song itself, its not hard to see why Trust Punks are getting a lot of buzz. A slow, sticky beginning quickly shifts into a coarse, off-kilter punk track that jogs along at a Rocky montage pace. There’s something inherently off about that the song, but that’s what keeps pulling you in. If you don’t like it, you probably shouldn’t have clicked on a band that misspells drag.
