Nowhere Fast - "Hindsight"
It’s interesting- the last time I saw Nowhere Fast, they were a poppy
punk band very much in the vein of MxPx. Now, it seems that they’ve
matured an amazing amount, and changed their sound to something that is
much more powerful.
Nowhere Fast is still quite melodic, but much heavier, with a sound
that is very much rooted in the post-hardcore sounds of such bands as
Fugazi. It’s an intricate sound that while giving you something to bang
your head to, the tunes are still rather catchy.
The vocals are gruff, but there’s still singing there, rather than
simply shouting and screaming. The guitars are what really drive this
record, with stop and start melodies that could easily move a mosh pit.
Both songs on this seven inch are worth the purchase price, and it’s
always nice to have something on vinyl. I definately like the band’s
new direction, and look forward to more out of these guys from Wichita.
