Sure – Positive Mental Energy
VANCOUVER – Victoria based rockers Sure are shaking up the punk scene this autumn with the release of their second album, Positive Mental Energy. Self-described as “bratty and straightforwardly poetic,” Sure marry the old-school classicism of The Ramones and the Sex Pistols with a modern synergy that is as unpretentious as it is unabashedly fun.
With the opening track, “Dog Pit” drawing the curtain back on the album, Sure makes damn—well, sure—that audiences know that they’re in for a head-banging good time from the get-go. With tasty guitar licks, hair-tossing beats, and vocals that scrape their way up the gentle side of punk, Sure nails a boyish vibe that will make waves with any audience.
Eclectic, exuberant, and enticing, Positive Mental Energy is a surefire hit this Fall.La Vida Local
