New Music: Cerebral Ballzy – Better In Leather

Rating:

The eagerly anticipated album Jaded and Faded by Brooklyn natives Cerebral Ballzy seems to be a mere few months away from release, with the hype surrounding it seeming justified after listening to their new track ‘Better In Leather’.

Since signing to Cult Records, label owner Julian Casablancas has dubbed the punk rockers ‘probably the coolest band in the world at the moment’, as well as being ‘a truly legit modern hardcore/punk band’. With songs like the newly released ‘Better In Leather’, it’s hard to disagree.

Opening with a typically punk introduction, ‘Better In Leather’ pleasingly invades eardrums; the simple guitar riff and clashing of cymbals presents a rare originality with the usual traits of the band’s genre.

Their layered vocals and staccato verses continue throughout the track, as does the bridge into the catchy chorus. Despite your genre preferences, ‘Better In Leather’ is definitely one to consider.
