Upstate, NY’s hidden gem Surmiser are a band I wish more people knew about, a neighborhood scorching trio of punkers who combine a slice of new wave with a serious noise and grunge focus for a sort of unearthly time warp into 90′s glory but even more aggro than some of that eras bands. New song “Dime” (as yet unmastered but still really packing a punch) comes off like a Tad and Tar angsty love/hate BBQ in the hot summer. Guitarist/vocalist Jay Andersen sounds particularly unhinged by the songs finale. Worth checking out. They’ve got an EP and full length out long with some singles here and there and deserve way more attention into the future.
