As Friends Rust – Won – Review

As Friends Rust

Won (Doghouse)
by Tim Den

With an almost entirely new line-up comes a reinvention of approach. As Friends Rust have moved away from the Hot Water Music-cum-Avail type of emo hardcore and into the more mature style of Dag Nasty, and all for the better. No more cliché sing-alongs and puppy dog-innocent-optimism. Instead, lots of change-ups in the mood of the riffing, tempos, and screaming/singing. They’ve set themselves apart from the pack with Won; let’s hope the members stick around this time.
