Claw Marks

Keira Cullinane
FEAR the call from Satan after listening to London fivesome, Claw Marks.

Ripping up the underground like no other there is a despicable punk ringing around the tracklisting.

Playing secret shows around London, having spells on Rough Trade and becoming close with The Wytches have all aided the Claw Marks 'being' in the industry.

Their latest track, The Coat is a darker mass, referencing the likes of Samhain and the cut-throat sadness of Nick Cave. More specifically the frightening blues sounds from tracks such as I Can't Hardly Sound It, intelligently compliments this ferocious track.

Spiralling into this dampened mass of punk, not neo or post, just fulfilling their own sound amongst a backdrop of desperate noise which the underground seems to encompass.

Setting their own bar, Claw Marks have been present for a few years, whether there will be more growth it's hard to tell, one thing is for sure they'll continue to irritate your neighbours.
