Philadephia heavy alternative crew Worst Ones have drawn influences from pretty much everywhere on the heavy music spectrum to create Is It Worth It?, their brand-new EP. Starting off with the Melvins-esque “Human Hair,” Is It Worth It? dabbles in sludge, doom, goth, industrial and fuzzed-out punk. Singer/guitarist Drew Ew’s vocals fall somewhere between a whine and a snarl; combined with the band’s instrumental sound, it wouldn’t be hard to believe Is It Worth It? is a never-released Sub Pop title from their heyday.
The subject matter covered on the EP is pretty heavy too. Worst Ones tell Decibel that they wrote the track “Human Hair” based on real-life experiences.
Is It Worth It? is available digitally from the band via Bandcamp.
