UK’s Hostile Minds follow up last year’s debut album ‘Violent Society’ with four brand new tracks on their latest E.P ‘Life on File’. When I heard about this release I was pretty excited because not only is this a release by one of my favourite UK bands, it’s the first release on a new UK label Union Records something the scene has been crying out for.
If you are aware of Hostile Minds you will know they play rough and ready Oi! and this release is no departure from that sound, which is no bad thing. First up is the excellent ‘No Fucks Given’, a song about staying true to yourself and of course not giving a fuck which has the added bonus of featuring Carl Jahier from Komintern Sect. The E.P continues brilliantly with the title track ‘Diehards’ before the final track ‘All Our Lives’, a melodic song with an excellent guitar solo and singalong chorus that will no doubt get stuck in your head as it has in mine
Life on File’ features four brilliantly executed tracks from a band at the top of their game and is a must buy for fans and anyone who is into British Oi.
