Back in June I went so see BlackWaters headline The Social in London, Naked Six being a last minute addition to the lineup.
I didn’t know what to expect, but fuck they were unbelievable. A three piece at the time (bassist Caleb has since left the band), Naked Six embody the filthiness and rawness of post grunge punk perfectly. Their on stage sound is heavy and vivid, yet tight as hell too. Riff wise they could play riffs for days, understanding the crucial points of rock’n’roll and knowing exactly how to make a post punk track click in that way. What I loved about Naked Six was the filthy sense of purity they had. It was honest, open punk music, with an almost nostalgic old school feel yet something very modern and fresh intertwined too. They ripped that tiny stage at The Social to bits, those heavy pounding riffs echoing throughout the venue. It’s neo-punk rock, with grunge and garage vibes chucked into the mix too, full to the brim with Hendrix/ Zeppelin-esque grit. - Indie Underground. Top 5 Live Discoveries of 2017 (so far…)
