VICE Exclusive: Needs' New Track Will Make You Want to Burn Down a Suburb
The Canadian band plays angsty punk tunes that sometimes veer into math, noise, and hardcore territory.
Some song titles are subtle, and other song titles are, "The Only Good Condo Is a Dead Condo." That's the name of this new track from Needs, a Canadian band who play angsty punk tunes that sometimes veer into math, noise, and hardcore territory. There's something invigorating about this band that's difficult to convey without listening to them—it's a genuineness that most punk bands have abandoned today in favor of paint-by-numbers tropes.
Needs does their own thing and ends up with a sound that's as exciting and energetic as it is depressing. Their self-titled debut is slated for release in May. You can't preorder it yet, but you can listen to another song, "We Forgot the Records to Our Record Release Show," here.
