Grunge comes together with lo-fi garage rock in this guttural debut from Salamander, Sheffield’s newest addition to its underground rock scene. The debut single ‘Burn The Witch’ is a delectable mess of energy, thick from start to finish with raw fuzz, half time grooves and gravelly vocals.
Drawing influence from Royal Blood, early Slaves and even grime acts like JME, Salamander are what happens when grunge, punk, grime and garage rock are shoved in an oven and left for forty minutes on full power.
“We just wanted to make something that people can launch chairs around to,” says Sharp.”Under the rawness of the song there is a deeper message that it’s okay to release your anger and not be bogged down with self loathing.”
A launch gig is scheduled for April 22nd at The Rocking Chair in Sheffield with newborn Sheffield garage band Dogmatic.
The outfit consists of Rhys Sharp (vocals), Tom Stocks (guitar), Joe Robinson (bass) and Lucas Parker (drums)
