Louder: S/T 12"

Sorry State Records


After a couple of singles on the Japanese label Episode Sounds, Sorry State is proud to release the debut LP from Japanäó»s Louder. I was introduced to Louder by Tsubasa, the guitarist of Sorry State band Rough Kids, and itäó»s clear why he likes them so much, as Louder bear more than a passing resemblance to Rough Kidsäó» song-centered, äó»77-influenced punk. However, Louder bring a distinctly Japanese take to the table, augmenting the Buzzcocks / Adverts-style melodic punk with some of the wild garage sounds of bands like the Registrators and Teengenerate. 10 tracks, all of them hits.
