Release Date: February 17, 2009
Richmond’s CLOAK/DAGGER return to burn through two more of their signature anthems to alienation on this 7 inch. The Swiz and Jehu references still ring true, but the Daggers have solidified their own sound and forged on. “Surf Song” resonates with anyone estranged by the detachment of the modern technological era (and maybe some geographically challenged would be surfers). On the flip, “Concentration Camps” gives us the tender side of CLOAK/DAGGER with brooding on the frustration of an infatuation-based attention deficit disorder. “Real life is not much fun” according to CLOAK/DAGGER, but with a single like this added to the mix, we beg to differ.
