Stratocastors - Sheitan EP

Stratocastors are a two-piece from Paris, France and this is their latest two song release 'Sheitan' - The EP begins with the sweary punk rocker 'Not My Problem'; an absolute stonking track which vents some apparent pent-up fury on a "c**t". The pulsating 'Rain of Tears' follows and it's more of the same, thrilling old skool punk with franatic power chords...Marvellous!

Stream this splendid EP below or download from their bandcamp page for €7.
