PREMIERE: Sunny Gang “Burn It Down”
The New Jersey band might just set off a punk-rap resurgence.
Punk-rap may not be making its return to mainstream anytime soon, but that won’t stop New Jersey’s Sunny Gang from attempting to rip open the minds of music fans everywhere, forcing them to believe in a resurgence. The band is comprised of vocalist/rapper Nasty Nate, guitarist Chris Bacchus, bassist Joe Sap, and drummer Marshal, who all play their part in this thrasher group, aggressively rebelling against the listener over instrumental blends of punk and hip hop. Opening for acts such as Danny Brown, Trash Talk, and KOOL A.D, the crew is slowly building underground notoriety on the East Coast.
Today, Mass Appeal premieres Sunny Gang’s new single, “Burn It Down.” The track’s a slow-build toward chaos, planting an audio uprising into the listener’s ear and asking for their aid in joining along. Nasty Nate’s rapping compliments the slow-churning punk build-up well, while the clashing cymbals and guitar work recalls an older era of music thrashing.
Stream “Burn It Down” below and watch out for Sunny Gang’s debut album, Party/Animal, dropping soon.
