Tunic, one of Canada’s best (and noisiest) new punk bands will self-release their latest EP, Boss, on July 21st, a corrosive and volatile record that takes the best moments of Metz and The Jesus Lizard and works them into their own artistic brilliance. Loud, aggressive, and often punishing, Winnipeg’s Tunic thrive on chaos, feedback, and manic bursts of slurred shouting. Lead single “Eye Contact” was your introduction, and “Boss” only ups the insanity. Visualized with another slow motion video of monotonous simplicity, the image of a man washing his hair is both oddly mesmerizing, balancing the idea of cleanliness with the song’s filthy noise punk. “Boss” is deliberately primal, a sludgy blend of abrasive shouts, caterwauling guitars, and massive rhythms pummel with a hypnotic fury.
