Song of the Week: 180db – “Road Trip”

This new collaborative project arrives with a blast of punk fury.

Although it’s been a couple of years since the post-punkers in Savages last released new music, they aren’t idling. Bassist Ayse Hassan and drummer Fay Milton have come together to create 180db. According to the duo, this project isn’t so much a band, as a “continuously morphing supergroup.” With the duo open for collaboration from all corners of the music world, the possibilities for 180db are endless.

“Road Trip” is our first taste of this project and it’s a fierce explosion of raging punk. The duo is joined on the track by Yeah Yeah Yeahs guitarist Nick Zinner and Perfect Pussy singer Meredith Graves. With Graves bringing a throat-ripping snarl, Hassan and Milton burning through a driving rhythm and Zinner playing his most aggressive guitar work since Fever to Tell, the song rocks pretty damn hard.

“Road Trip” is available now.
