Lai - Pontianak
This is the debut album with this Melbourne, Australia based band. An absolute ferocious and menacing fusion of raging swedish d-beat and manic old school hardcore punk. The name of the band is taken from a Chinese Mandarin phrase meaning 'to come/next.' and Lái invoke these diasporic identities and themes through punk, mixing ideas and personal experiences that often inter-connect but also continue to conflict in the world around us.
