Celebration Summer are the latest in a long line of Washington D.C. area politically charged punk bands. Hailing from Northern Virginia, they've just released "Disconnected." This new song sounds and feels a lot like your Dischord favorites. It's a song that is as fast and loud as it is heartfelt. If anything, it might be a little rougher and more fuzzy than what you typically associate with D.C. punk. I'm hearing an interesting hybrid of Rites of Spring and Jawbreaker in this one. Punk is a genre that follows a very specific series of narrow rules. Celebration Summer are pulling off making music within those rules while breaking out with their own sound.
You can watch the video for "Disconnected" below. Patience in Presence will be out later this year on A-F Records in the US and Shield Recordings in Europe. For more on Celebration Summer, check out the band's Facebook and Instagram.
