Enemy | Dave’s Pawn Shop

There beckoned a time in the 80s and 90s where music captured the emotions of teenage angst and bands such as Nirvana and Incubus told us how to feel. Yet local boys Dave’s Pawn Shop attempt to resurrect this dying breed with their latest EP Enemy. From the first press of play the familiar scent of Nirvana’s In Utero springs to mind as the huge crunch of distorted guitars move each song. Slow burner Hello How Low is an angst anthem, which sees guitarist/vocalist Jake Williamson asks the question “Who am I?” While EP standout Fuck You adds a darker and angrier side to Dave’s Pawn Shop’s catalogue. The shifting dynamics and heavier lyrics, “Fuck you, is this what you want?” make for a perfect rock song.
