Reviews Deep Sleep You're Screwed

Deep Sleep

You're Screwed

You're Screwed is nine songs of modern punk from Baltimore-based Deep Sleep. The songs on this 7" are quick and to the point and fueled by high-octane energy. Unfortunately, Deep Sleep just really isn't my thing, which is surprising as they claim to be heavily influenced by the Descendents, who are one of my old-time favorites. But unlike the Descendents, Deep Sleep stay away from writing catchy pop-infused hardcore-punk. While they do lack in the pop category, Deep Sleep are most certainly infusing their songs with punk attitude. Songs like "Fast Forward," "Alone With You," and "Screwed" are quite fine examples of that. In the end, I'm probably the wrong person to be covering this band, but if you're into modern punk that avoids the oi's, the whoa's, and "the pop," then this is most likely up your alley.
