Bold and brazen is how I’d describe the latest track from Sudakistan and there's nothing wrong with that. ‘Mundo Mamon’ doesn't waste any time getting your ears acquainted with a big guitar sound filled with reverbed vocals that never truly gives you an opportunity to catch your breath. The sound only gets bigger as the drums get more emphatic and pronounced throughout. It's unsurprisingly unapologetic about being punk, too, so you know what you’re in for as soon as the intro kicks in all the way through to the end of the track.
There are some latino influences infused throughout, which brings a nice extra element and helps to distinguish Sudakistan’s sound from the wall of punk that slams you in the face for the rest of the song. I can't help but wish there was something else there to break up the monotonous nature of the second half but it's still rather enjoyable and full of energy that keeps the blood boiling and the head banging.
It’s not often in today’s music scene that you hear something that's unapologetic about what it is and really sticks to that sound, and despite ‘Mundo Mamon’s uniformity it’s a good listen with a strong vibe and tonnes of energy that could probably power a small town.
Sudakistan’s debut LP, Caballo Negro, is out on 30 October on PNKSLM
