Posers have been igniting the Philadelphia punk scene for the last year or so. Although the band is charged by an O.G. punk aesthetic- snappy three chord riffs, frantic live performances, several songs about how much they hate you- there’s something undeniably fresh about the band.
If you stare at them, and listen to them, and watch them, there is a lot of “Standard issue punk” there. But, something is off- something that you can’t quite figure out- something that makes them different…
