Sydney based Hurst - supercharged comfort food - "On Purple and Green"


























Sydney (Aus) based Hurst has alt rock bones that veer toward the purity of that iconic 90's / 2000's sounds of bands like Superchunk or The Thermals. That sound that screams more indie rock meets power pop than punk. It is dirty and clean at the same time, guitar hook laden with infectious melodies. On Purple and Green I thought a bit of Better Than Ezra. Ana Veira and the boys seem to be making post punk sounds that charge you up like the best pizza ever after clubbing, musical comfort food that tastes brand new.
