The Belligerents: “Such A Crime”

I should just stop saying bands are from Australia, because apparently it’s a gold mine for talented up-and-coming acts. Brisbane’s The Belligerents are just such a group, with their funky brand of danceable punk that’s comparable to bands like Foals, The Maccabees or The Cribs. The appeal of “Such A Crime” comes in its guitar jangling, synth-grinding groove: It has a hook that the ears can almost immediately latch onto.

The Belligerents recently released their EP Less Arty More Party — a pretty apt name for their sound, actually — near the end of last month. They haven’t gotten a lot of buzz just yet, but their sound is fresh enough and funky enough to quickly win over some hearts. Check out the summer-camp-gone-wild video for “Such A Crime” below as well.
