It is admittedly early days, but we’ve heard few records so far this year to match Mike Krol’s garage rock tour de force Power Chords in its combination of catchy lo-fi punk thrills and unexpected lyrical depths.
Written following a period following 2015’s Turkey LP in which he’d considered leaving the rock & roll life behind, Power Chords is the record of his journey back, and scratchy new single ‘What’s The Rhythm’ is a perfect first step.
Power Chords is released through Merge Records on 25th January. Mike Krol tours the UK in April, playing the following venues:
