Self Released (2017)
I was really excited when Kazu from Waterslide Records told me he had the 2 Sick Worry demo CD for me. They were one of the bands that played the Waterslide/PopKid show that I got to go to when I was in Tokyo at the very beginning of 2017. 2 Sick Worry were one of the highlights of that show, so I've been looking forward to finally hearing more from them.
This demo CD contains three songs, two of which are just incredible, though criminally short. The first song is "Drawn" starts off at a million miles an hour until they reach the breakdown right before the chorus that emphasizes the incredible hook they've managed to cram in here. The other highlight is the third song "Change Of Rain." This one has a slightly (and I do mean slightly) slower tempo, but conjures the very best of bands like Navel or Skimmer. I'm particularly reminded of those bands when it comes to the vocals.
While the second song on this CD, "Heartache" doesn't soar quite as high as the other two, I'm really curious to see what 2 Sick Worry come up with as they keep writing and recording. After all, this is just a demo and the fact that they're so good already makes me thing great things are coming in the future.
