It's hard for a song to be just over one minute long and not leave you wanting more. But Portland, OR's Era Bleak have nailed that with "Robot." The song is one minute and nine seconds, and it's perfect just the way it is. It's a frantic blast of post punk thrashing directly towards the punk side of that genre. It's almost like if Downtown Boys tried out post punk, and succeeded marvelously. It's loud and hard and fast and just perfect. Plus, with a band name like Era Bleak, they might just be the band of 2020.
You can listen to "Robot" below. Era Bleak's self-titled album will be out August 15 on Dirt Cult Records. You can pre-order a copy here. For more on Era Bleak, check them out on Facebook.
