Code Orange Kids have one of the worst names I can recall in recent memory. Fortunately, the quality of their name doesn’t carry over to their music. They’re a recent Deathwish Inc. signing, and in my best attempt to stay on top of what’s new in hardcore in 2012, I’ve been listening to them quite a bit the last few days. I really like the cut of this Pittsburgh hardcore band’s gib.
Cylces is a 7″ they put out late last year, and I’ve enjoyed it quite a bit. I’m not sure how to describe their sound necessarily. They’re a hardcore punk band, that get’s really slow, they get really post-hardcore and sometimes they’re just heavy. It’s a meeting ground of a lot of branches of hardcore, and that’s the kind of thing I find myself drawn to. If you’re into that kind of thing, you should check them out.
