Flexure is a new punk band comprised of folks from such outfits as Provoke, No Babies, Cinza, and Trenches. The Oakland, CA-based quartet keep things nice and simple, with classic-sounding guitar riffs that hark back to early hardcore. The vocals are delivered with a crystal-clear authority, also packing tons of attitude in each line.
Released in January of this year, Flexure's self-titled demo is a great showcase for the group. If I had to choose, "Chain" would be my pick for its strongest track. I love the combination of the clarity in the vocals with the old-school guitar tone and the way the fast part creeps up a few seconds into the verse.
You can download the entire Flexure 2019 demo on their Bandcamp page.
