Sydney-based pop-punk quintet Bellwether have today revealed their pensive debut single Shortsighted.

The Bronx, a band hailed for harnessing the “unleashed cries of youthful blue-collar anguish” is a band I’ve heard and heard of before, in fleeting conversations where people have literally lost skin over them, but a band I’ve nonetheless never paid much attention to. Now though, it seems I have no choice as I have been gifted their sixth studio album – ninth if you count the three released under their alter ego Mariachi El Bronx.

Apparently, Dawn Fades are about to give me a lesson in it though, so I may end up a little wiser by the end of this review. Alternatively, I’ll just end up with another sub-genre to add to my shit list, but let’s not jump the gun and instead wait and see how their new album Ode works out for ...
