Langkamer - "Full Contact"

Bristol's Langkamer are being billed as alt-country and country punk. With their latest single, "Full Contact," I'm not really hearing that sound, although there are some of the bare bones of country twang in there. To me, I'm hearing more Pavement going more mainstream and having a harder edge, with some country twang hinting around the edges. 

Drummer Joshua Jarman explains the song: "I had a pretty miserable time in school. It was such an absurdly strict and stifling environment. Even the classes I should’ve loved and done well in were structured in such a restrictive way as to choke any joy out of them. It’s a rotten way to spend your time. That’s what the song’s about. Plus I guess it’s kind of a tribute to the Louis Sacher novel ‘Holes’."

You can watch the video for "Full Contact" below. The song is available now via Breakfast Records. For more on Langkamer, check them out on Facebook and Twitter.
