Clay J Gladstone “Balance”

Australian five-piece, Clay J Gladstone just released their sophomore single, “Balance.” Comprised of former and current members of Buried In Verona, Resist The Thought, and Caulfield, the track mixes elements of garage rock revival, post-punk, and emo. Jaunty guitars and distorted vocals on the verse that sound straight out a Strokes song give way to a post-rock wall-of-noise and emotive yelling for the chorus. It strikes the perfect combination of angst and manic energy.
