It’s been two long years since Israel's Not On Tour released 'Growing Pains,' a collection of fast and short melodic punk rock songs that stood out thanks to Sima Brami's powerful vocals. The good news? They are back with a new 7” that comes with 3 B-sides that didn’t make the album. The bad news? It’s just 3 songs.

Luckily, there’s a lot of good to be said for these songs. We recently premiered opener ‘Desperation Street,’ a short yet surprisingly complete cut that’s as furious as it is melodic. It’s a formula that works wonders for them and one they have down pat. I mean, they don’t even need real lyrics to make a song stand out. The lyrics in‘GMSN’are pretty much just the band members’ first names being sung over and over and it makes for a ridiculously catchy song. Next up is ‘What Future,’ another track that is so concise it makes you wonder why other bands need longer songs to get their point across.  

 

Tracklist:

  1. Desperation Street
  2. GMSN
  3. What Future
