ANIMALS AND CHILDREN – ‘Too Fucked To Fail’ EP Review


Animals and ChildrenAnimals And Children is stripped down, no frills, melodic hardcore punk. Where most bands would do an intro, they won’t. The band formed in 2018 in Los Angeles and cite influences such as Black Flag along with some other famous SoCal punkers!

Too Fucked To Fail is their debut release featuring three songs in under four minutes.  What’s Wrong With Me is sixty-six seconds of raw garage punk rock with tight riffs, pounding beats and a gravelly vocal backed by the group to produce the perfect punk rock package.

While still a new band their credits are quickly building. They are the opening track on Vicious Mistress Records latest compilation, Punk In The Streets 5 (featuring The Restarts) and the sixty-eight seconds of Nothing I Can Say shows why they are gaining attention with the edgy and energetic punk rock blasting your eardrums with raw power.

The title track Too Fucked To Fail closes this excellent package with an insistent and urgent garage punk/hardcore punk blend throwing in an off-kilter solo and some engaging lyrics that have you rooting for the band. It’s raw and melodic, hardcore and accessible and it is bloody good!!
