Northpaw – “Trepidation”

Northpaw – “Trepidation” EP (

Screaming post hardcore with emo melodies! Britain’s Northpaw weigh in with some serious power and aggression from Charlie Grout-Smith’s hoarse, Neil Fallon-esque raw throaty vocals that threaten to tear his larynx right out to the wild pummeling rhythm of Andy Allen’s smashing drum work. Adding hardcore choruses on songs on like ‘Face Needs’, ‘Extinction’ and ‘Gratulerar’ it’s certainly enough to bring trepidation to anyone with feeble ears although the pensive guitars of Huet & Irvine, while at times adding to the wall of noise are otherwise soothingly lulling you away by almost mandolin like melodies – deffo an off the wall band worth checkin out!
