This split 7” features two bands from northern England that play both some kind of melodic hardcore in the vein of Good Riddance.
To be honest I have a hard time distinguishing between both bands. Their styles are so similar that I could not tell which one is which if I hadn’t memorized the catchy chorus lines of their songs. Both bands are travelling along the stylistic line that is dividing hardcore and punk. The riffing is clearly hardcore but the vibe is punk as fuck. Highly energetic and ass kicking shit. I think I like The Mercury League a little more because they are a little faster and the vocals are a little more desperate. But both bands make me wanna hear them on a full length. And also they make me wanna skate and listen to early nineties Burning Heart, Fat Wreck and Epitaph releases. Comes with stamped lyrics sheet. Awesome shit!
