Greensboro, NC’s Totally Slow drops a brand new video for Dead Skate to promote their forthcoming album called Causal Drag. Expect nothing but a powerful melodic hardcore that resembles some brighter days for this genre.
On Casual Drag’s ten smooth songs, you’ll hear razor-sharp, no-frills melodic hardcore, with fierce lyrics that show how the personal is inseparable from the political when the country is on the brink of chaos. For this exhilarating album, Totally Slow has consolidated the melodic hymns of 1980s SoCal bands like The Adolescents, Agent Orange, and The Faction, with the skewed rawk of ‘90s San Diego bands, Drive Like Jehu and Truman’s Water, and the righteous conviction of classic DC hardcore like Dag Nasty, Gray Matter and Fugazi. Not only does Totally Slow burn bright, on Casual Drag, they also feed the fire.
