Skurvi – Apathetic Apology
Brighton punks Skurvi are back with their brand of anthemic punk rock on new E.P ‘Apathetic Apology’ which is the follow up to 2016’s ‘Get Em In’ album and makes for a great listen in these trying times. The 4-piece of Jimmy (Vocals), Perry (Guitar), Liam (Bass), Matt (Drums) play fast and extremely catchy punk rock which is reminiscent of Dirt Box Disco, Peter and the Test Tube Babies and Cock Sparrer.
‘Apathetic Apology’ has 6 brilliant earworms that are full of great melodies, brilliant lyrics, and choruses that would be rude to not singalong to. There really isn’t a bad track on this E.P and from the brilliant opener of ‘Catch 22’ it shows us that Skurvi have the knack of writing brilliant punk rock songs that I’m sure will stand the test of time.
After an excellent start the band keep delivering cracking songs like ‘Dirty River’, ‘Enemy’ and the brilliant ‘Football’, a song that I’m sure most football fans can relate to and will no doubt be listening to with a huge smile on their faces. For me, the band has saved the best 2 songs until last, firstly with ‘Gunshots’, a brilliantly catchy sing-along anthem which reminds me of Cock Sparrer and is my favourite track. The last track ‘Never Say Die’ is a brilliantly written anthem with a great chorus which brings ‘Apathetic Apology’ to an end in style.
All in all, Skurvi has given us an excellent release that if you like your punk or Oil! on the catchy side, this is a must for your collection.
