Desperate Living are a brand new band based out of Philadelphia, but they’ve already begun to find a unique sound. Comprised of members from The Minor Times, Ladder Devils and CRUISR, Desperate Living combine a noise rock swagger with the moodiness of Converge. Their debut album, New Concrete, is slated for a March 1 release on Brutal Panda and we’ve got the first song from the record for you today.
“Leave It” is sharp, angular and punky, and a perfect summation of what to expect on New Concrete. Desperate Living maintain a steady pace throughout the song, working themselves into a fervor through repetition that ends as quickly as it began. Hear “Desperate Living” below—just make sure you listen loud—and stay tuned to Desperate Living for more activity from the up-and-coming group.
