Sweeping Promises – Hunger for a Way Out
Bandcamp discovery of the week: Sweeping Promises, a new Boston group making thrilling, urgent post-punk with heavy late '70s / early '80s vibes, elevated to another level by Lira Mondal's powerhouse vocals. The band's raw and infectious debut album Hunger for a Way Out came out last week, and it rips. Sick cover art too. Unfortunately the vinyl is already long gone, but you can listen to the record below -- that title track is an instant add to our songs of 2020 playlist -- and download it now on Sweeping Promises' bandcamp.
