Calling Oakland, California foursome RAYS a “supergroup” might be misleading, but not entirely inaccurate; comprised as they are of four Bay-area music veterans; Stanley Martinez, Eva Hannan, Troy Hewitt & Alexa Pantalone whose current and past musical projects include local bands-of-note like The World, Life Stinks, Violent Change, and Dadfag.

On their debut album the band spins eleven tunes of wiry, urgent post-punk, one foot planted firmly in the nihilistic apathy of 70 & 80’s punk (Wire, Electric Eels, Pere Ubu, Eno, Television The Fall), Australian punk past & present (UV Race, Terry, Victims, Babeez), and the addictive strum of 80’s & 90’s New Zealand/Flying Nun pop; all of whom have found their own way to meld the ferocity and thuggery of punk with a singular melodic voice.
