FRESH – ” Raise Hell “

Posted: July 3, 2022 in MUSIC

Punx from London who love emo, shredding, touring, oat milk, and using friendship to fill a large uncertain hole inside of yourself, This is the third album from these London DIY punks; they have been an unwavering fixture within the UK punk scene since their first record in 2017. A joy to behold live, Woods honed her craft not only fronting Fresh but as a member of several heralded indie and punk bands, including cheerbleederz and ME REX alongside Fresh bandmate Myles McCabe.

Their new album radiates with their signature mischievous British charm and flourishes of brilliant pop punk flair – though underestimate Fresh at your peril. “Raise Hell” dares to dive deeper than most, delivering Woods’ darker moments and contemplative thought processes through the sharply focussed lens of upbeat indie punk. Since their inception the band have been working tirelessly recording and touring.

I really can’t believe it. I wrote “Our Love” in the spring of 2019 – Withdraw wasn’t even out yet, but I already knew that I had the next record blooming. We spent so long with this record (writing, recording, mixing, designing the art, planning the roll-out). As a band lucky enough to be three albums deep, we wanted to push ourselves and explore heavy concepts while still having fun and creating in the way that we always have: spontaneously and with a sense of humour.

I want to shout out our producer Rich Mandell. From the minute I started working with Rich, I’ve been blown away by the respect and care that he has for our songs. No idea is too big and no change is too small. He’s as naturally curious as he is generous and we’re lucky to have him. Thanks lil Rich.
