There have been some pretty amazing releases this past year and November saw yet another to add to the tally. The Sunshine Coasts Drawcard have recently dropped their fourth release ‘Goons LTD‘, combining hard punk driven riffs with powerful melodic choruses. Drawing influences from bands like Story Of The Year and local stalwarts the The Getaway Plan.

The first thing you hear as you enter the EP full of punk rock anthems is a guitar jack and feedback, setting the tone for the ride you’re about to embark on. The first of the five tracks ‘Kids‘, really showcases what these lads are all about. By the time the diverse and on point lead vocals come in you will have probably eased the volume up several notches, which is exactly what this first track makes you want to do.
This record needs to be played loud.

The EP is extremely well put together, with all of the five tracks being around the three minute mark they manage to incorporate an impressive amount of diversity into each one, combining some kick-ass melodies with some heavy riff driven breaks.

As well written as ‘Goons LTD‘ is, it also showcases some great recording and production with a clean crisp sound and a flawless mix thanks to Sonny Truelove at Sydney’s STL Studios. With the combination of great gang vocals, powerful guitars and booming drums everything sits just where it should for a record of its kind.

Drawcard have knocked out a belter from front to back, a solid well written & well produced EP and you can catch them on tour all the way up the east coast this December.

You can pick up your own copy of Goons LTD via their Bandcamp Page.
