The Splits are a trashy garage punk band hailing from Helsinki, Finland. The group was formed in the fall of 2010 and immediately struck a chord (pardon the pun) with rock fans. The band was the first that any of the members had been in, yet they still managed to land a record deal without having played a single show. Impressive.
Legendary label Dirtnap Records recently announced they’re releasing the band’s American debut, II, on April 28. Whether you’re a fan of hardcore, post-punk or garage rock, you’re going to dig what these three ladies and one dude have to offer. The Scandinavians know how to rock and The Splits are no exception. In a burst of just nine songs, II captures the ferocity and force of a great band with strong influences from both modern day punk and 70’s punk legends. It’s absolutely an album worth checking out.
