Unsacred Hearts play pure, heavily Pixies-influenced
indie rock. They've got the gritty energy down, as well as the
heavenly bruised melodies. "1978" and "I Was
Raised To Be Polite & Kind" are pure Surfer Rosa; the
band even seems to have a few hooks in common with Black Francis'
compositions. While the melodies aren't as immediately classic
as Pixies material, the songs do have a similar appeal.
Most of these tracks are under two minutes in duration; only two
of the seven surpass this mark. "Stuck Inside a Mobile Home
with the Mansion Blues Again" and "We Were a Band"
stray a bit from the Pixies formula, instead opting for
high-tension dance-punk and looser, melodic 70s-ish punk. Overall, this EP is a fine offering from Unsacred
Hearts; it should fit in well with most punk and indie rock
