Words by Tim Hakki @TimHakki
There’s something atavistic about Leland Sundries’ cerebral punk n’ roll approach. ‘Greyhound From Reno’ is scrappy with a kind of street smart that recalls the New York Dolls, at the same time there’s something a little poetic about it à la Pavement, and definitely very off-kilter like Pixies or The Gun Club. It’s refreshing to hear a band flip off commercial trends to craft a sound defiantly new and unquestionably punk. It’s all curiously intricate and layered, almost meditatively so, but built around a clear visceral lust for the tinderbox spontaneity of the four chord fuckabout.
