Montreal-based five-piece Pottery crafts a chaotic, high-energy brand of post-punk that echoes early Devo in a decidedly modern fashion. Frantic vocals and noodly guitar riffs layer over [strict] drums, creating a sonic tension that eventually crashes into resolve. Their double-sided single, released in November 2018, is a promising debut that’s created an air of excitement and mystery around the up-and-comers, who as of yet have a relatively small online presence.
The boys of Pottery are hitting SXSW hard this year with 9 shows stretched out across four days, kicking off their USA/Canada tour with Viagra Boys.
Keep an eye out for what’s to come for this exciting new act and enjoy a free download from Pottery “Hank Williams”!
