Real punk from America's cruelest town. Hatched in 2017 via an assemblage of FLESH WORLD, MALLARD and BLANK SQUARE personnel, WARP’s from-the-hip attack immediately streamlined The Bay’s skulls, prompting sudsy devotion across spiked and freaked schools alike, a vibrant punk band operating amidst all the scooter-share inhumanity. The damage spills from the central screaming dual-guitar tangle, a riff tract neighboring the elegantly bruised and dynamic Agnew / Baiza axis, exerting too much power for the troposphere. Rhythms twist and barrel depending on need, always leaping forward, propelling each taut composition into realms unthinkable from count-off. TIKA’s smarm-centric vocal steering—wonderfully absurdist and unreservedly pissed—offers exactly the sort of punky exfoliation so very needed in these days of constant cringe."—Mitch Cardwell.
