The Shondes claim to generate moody political punk fused with a variety of more traditional music forms (classical, Jewish traditional). They just released their album The Red Sea. I could buy it. I definitely agree with the Sleater-Kinney comparisons being thrown around. I also hear alot of post-hardcore influence in the vocals and guitar-work on songs like “Let’s Go”. But it’s probably best if you hear for yourself.
