I must admit that I have never heard of The Sobers prior to this record, but now I am so happy that I did after I listened and reviewed their new record for our zine.
The Sobers are punkrock band from Marseille, France and their new record contains 13 songs. I was blown away at the start of the album how greasy and dirty it sounds and how easily it evolves into beautiful melody in the first song D.L.D. So, the music these guys play is dirty, but still melodic punk with mainly personal, but also good and smart lyrics. I would definitely love to hear how this material sounds live. Damn! Vocals are harsher sung, but still enough melodic and appealing, backing and harmony vocals are awesome too, so all of you who read my reviews know how important are the vocals for me in such bands. There are some songs that were more outstanding for me, those being: Shitty Halo, It Could Have Been A Better Day, Blood Feud. This is a great album for the fans of rawer, yet melodic punkrock.
