Power-pop trio Metalleg to play Union Pool 9/17

Good music has the tendency to grip the listener, but great punk grabs the listener by the shoulders and throws them headfirst into the pit before they have a grip on what's happening. Self described "gutter pop" trio Metalleg is a NYC-based punk band that produces explosive tracks with such immediately compelling hooks, you'd be hard pressed to not find yourself instantly diving in. "Hit of the Week" is the band's most recent release and is the sum of 10 tracks -- most of which clock in under the two minute mark -- and offers a non-stop jaunt through classic NYC-punk sounds. Landing somewhere in between the Cars and the Ramones, Metalleg's music is sure to warm its way into your gray matter, and get stuck in your ears long after the songs have stopped. Catch them headling at Union Pool Sept 17th alongside Gorilla, Wyldlife and Cozy and in the meantime, listen to the link below. - Olivia Sisinni
