GUPPY is a new band from Kalamazoo in Michigan. It consists of members of The Reptilian, Seventeen Again, Shoto, Anybody But The Cops and Short Life. The music is quite eclectic and pulls from a myriad of sources including Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr., Autolux, and Cloud Nothings. The style, or should I say styles as there is a variety of songs by the band, come across as one fluid clusterfuck of emo, rock and grunge. The six-song 'We Grow Small, We Grow Stupid' is a very promising debut that is highlighted by the playful, catchy, heavy and post-hardcore influenced "B'jinx'd" for which they made a sweet video that you can check out here on Vimeo. I love the gruff vocals with a tad of melody buried in there, as Dan intertwines them with the music and it ends up sounding really good. The EP was released by Skeletal Lightning and limited to 100 copies which you can grab from the label here and I've also got a copy in the ZBR distro which is having the 50% off sale for another few hours here. The band is currently 7 songs into a debut LP that they hope to record this summer of 2016 and also have a show coming up this weekend in Kalamazoo which I've linked here.
