Bands You Should See #12: PIPES
Music should be an exciting experience, whether this is through chilling melodies and haunting lyrics or pogoing around your bedroom to your new favourite band. Pipes provide excitement of the latter kind serving up a range of hardcore punk delights for you to break the floorboards too. This is music at its roots with PIPES capturing the pent up confused tension of the recession generation and unleashing into 120 seconds chunks.
With the music industry and London alone, overflowing with indie bands, standing out in the market is increasingly difficult to do. PIPES manage to carve out some space with their razor sharp riffs and melodies tucked into 2 minute rock delights. Sounding like a pack of rampant dogs let loose into the wild, PIPES won’t let you stop for a minute, endlessly pounding your head with rapid vocals and thundering drums.
The band has a host of upcoming gigs in the London area as they plan to add a bit of excitement to your summer. Expect an energetic live show as the trio storm through songs such as Mother and D.I.C.K bringing anger but also a sophistication to the hardcore punk scene. Catch them while you can and enjoy the ride.
PIPES play Dirty Money at the Stag’s Head on Saturday.
