We just discovered Font when they opened for CHAI earlier this month, so we're thrilled to finally have some music from them to share. Their new single, "It," showcases what made their show great. It's a bizarre punk song that's as electronic as it is rock. The song has an intense groove and beat that threatens to make it a dance track, but it just rocks a little too hard for that. Of course, if your definitions of rock or punk are stringent, Font won't fit into either of those categories for you. But what's more punk than just ignoring all the rules of the genre? Especially when you do it in such a unique and compelling way? "It" is a song filled with dance beats, synths, and samples, and is still one of the best noise punk songs of the year.
