Based in Boston, Service are one of the many bands that include Rainy Maple Sugar Candy (Sapling, Eye Witness) as a member. This time, Rainy is on drums and vocals are handled by Luka Lemander. The band's new EP, High Speed Vomit, is more along the lines of Sapling than Eye Witness. Service is punk, but a completely different breed of punk. The EP opener, "Albondigas," starts off more in the realm of math rock and even prog rock before just exploding into a faster punk sound. It kind of reminds me of Ex Models. "Spodes" takes the loud/quiet/loud trope and converts it to quiet/loud/fast/louder/quiet. "May Song" is as intensely catchy as it is loud. Somehow the songs on High Speed Vomit are both discordant and beautiful, and as punk as they are prog. It takes a unique band to pull all of that off this well.
You can listen to "May Song" below. High Speed Vomit is available now via Bandcamp. If you can wait until tomorrow, it's a Bandcamp Friday so Service will receive all proceeds from the sale! For more on Service, check them out on Facebook.
