Flatliner is an urgent and restless sonic bundle of energy that drags the listener along with it, but you will thank Year Without Summer for doing so. It’s either a muscular slice of indie or a melodic take on alt-rock…maybe both,  or something else entirely but with a grungy anthemic to it, a sonic spell broken only by a neat breakdown towards the end and its howl-at-the-moon vocal crescendo, as a first taste of their music goes, it’s rather great.

I had a quick listen to a couple of their other songs too. If you like the idea of a garage band version of Soul Asylum in their nineties heyday, you’ll gonna love these guys.
