The Finger Guns Seattle
Authentic to the Northwest music scene, The Finger Guns are here to rock your proverbial socks off. Armed with musicianship and passion, this three-piece band leaves it all on the stage every time the amps get warm. Their performances are unpretentious, witty, and guaranteed to make a crowd move. The bands unique set of influences brings out songs that have a sensibility that spans decades. Slices of 80’s punk topped with sprinkles of 90’s rock and spatters of country make up a big steaming batch of awesome.
Formed in 2010 and featuring a veteran line-up of Seattle musicians, The Finger Guns have released five albums to date: “A Double EP”, “The Bigfoot EP”, “Yeti”, their vinyl debut “Sasquatch”, and finally “Blowsy”.
Blowsy is the next chapter in this Punk Rock trio’s career. The Finger Guns aren’t pulling any punches with this one. Blowsy is an all-out rocking album reminiscent to the classics such as The Sex Pistols and a less-pop version of The Ramones. Tracks such as ‘9.99 Quesadilla’ and ‘Go Away’ demonstrate the band’s anti-establishment mentality and fierce Punk attitude, while other songs such as ‘No Reason To Stay Awake’ offers a wide variety of melodies and a more melancholic vibe. Blowsy is more than your average punk rock album, as it offers more than just power-chords backed by a bunch of yelling. The vocals are well thought out, the riffs have many different flavours to them (like a cheesy quesadilla with guac and sour cream) and the drums blend in perfectly. The Finger Guns will be firing on all cylinders this year with the release of Blowsy.
“The Blowsy EP is able to shine as bright as it does because of the masterful production. Each note, bass line, drum fill and guitar solo is able to shine alone or as part of a greater whole. These five tracks are some of the crispest and cleanest punk we’ve ever heard, and it does not come at the cost of The Finger Guns’ soul.” – Neufutur Magazine
