Bridge And Tunnel: East / West

Bridge And Tunnel
East / West
No Idea Records [2008]

Fire Drills Review:
The post-punk sound lives on with Bridge And Tunnel's interplaying guitars and hard edged melodies. The New York group takes a little different approach because on several tracks the female vocals get the shining light which puts Bridge And Tunnel out on limb more by themselves compared to other bands in this genre. Overall East/West is a quality listen all the way through and gets better with each spin while reminding you that bands like these have slowly went underground so it's great to see Bridge And Tunnel breaking out with some deserved hype!

Key Track: "Call To The Comptroller’s Office"

Band With Similar Fire: Hot Water Music
