Saloon Dion from Bristol have been around for a couple of years, releasing singles, playing gigs and building up momentum to put out a collection of songs. Now the wait is over, with the debut EP Muckers out earlier this week, and it solidifies the group’s place as one of the most exciting bands in the post-punk revival.
Five-piece draws influences from classic hardcore bands such as Fugazi and Title Fight, and 90’s Britpop legends like Suede and Blur, creating their own brand of fast-paced punk rock with infectious hooks and politically acute subject matter of songs. Punchy and thought-provoking, it is a solid DIY release from the group that is certainly worth your time.
