Pale Kids "Holy Mess" 7"
Side A: Prayer List, The Binder's Chills
Side B: Boring, St. James
Pale Kids are four queer-punks from Durham, and no they’re not the same band as Martha, although they did record one of their EP’s in their house. High on pop give you their latest opus and it's a total banger. A wise person once said that they sound like a mix of The Undertones (if Fergal Sharkey dropped acid instead of drinking Tizer), Slade and Protex, It's the sound of a party that you were never invited to.
Discussing the record, the band suggest it’s about, “being sick, distracted, heartbroken, obsessed, inattentive and the guilt we feel for all these things.”
