Explode Into Colors “Sharpen The Knife”


Here’s a band that broke up basically as soon as I heard about them.  My friend Alyx at Feminist Music Geek blogged about them leading up to SXSW 2010 and the band broke up within three months.  They left behind a great record in Quilts, but I would have loved to hear them develop these ideas, and, y’know, see them live.  “Sharpen The Knife” is one of their most focused songs, bringing the tribal punk energy of Savage Republic into a more modern arrangement.  Using mellotron instead of guitar to go with the dual drums and bass is a nice touch.
