the Skinny: The bands newest EP, Under Constant Influence is an entirely DIY, self-released affair. The album was recorded locally at the famed 8 Houses Down (Teenage Bottlerocket, Discount, Ninja Gun, Planes Mistaken For Stars) and was then hand screen printed on chipboard by the band. EDC features a keytar player and cranks out an urgent, propulsive and visceral, yet decidedly melodic brand of punk rock. Under Constant Influence falls somewhere between Song Of Zarathustra’s kinetic, driving attack, the swirling layers of These Arms Are Snake’s aggressive post-punk stylings and the anguished, raw delivery of hometown brethren Planes Mistaken For Stars.
