scene and more.

Album Review: Boston Manor - Driftwood EP

For a fair old while now Blackpool punkers Boston Manor have been making waves in the UK punk scene, and new EP 'Driftwood' is a cracking encapsulation of just why that is. Showing that there is far more to the seaside hotspot then a tower and some obliterated hen parties, the lads have put out a gritty and hard hitting release that’s equal parties grit, vitriol, hooky melodies and raucous choruses.

There’s a ring of integrity, edginess and unflinching honesty to Boston Manor's writing which too many of their peers sadly lack, with the lyrical content in particular being refreshingly to the point and pulling absolutely no punches.

Musically and vocally the band bring enough melody and tunefulness to be easy on the ear, while maintaining enough raw energy and snarling attack in their performance to know that these boys mean every single crashing note.
