(Sorry State Records)
Second 7" from this new Raleigh punk band and the inaugural release in Sorry State's North Carolina Singles Series. Davidians were born from the ashes of Double Negative, featuring three former members of that band along with Colin Swanson-White (Formaldehyde Junkies, Voight-Kampff, Safewords) on guitar. While you can definitely hear some of Double Negative's quirky hardcore punk in Davidians' sounds, the more straightforward elements have been expunged, leaving a gritty, off-kilter sound that's equal parts Saccharine Trust and CopShootCop. Dark music for dark times.
