Total Heels

Total Heels hail from the same Copenhagen punk scene that birthed Iceage and Lower, but unlike the dark, brooding sounds of those bands, Total Heels are sharper and brighter, with a vocalist (the sole American member) who bears an uncanny resemblance to The Thermals' Hutch Harris. Their new 7" is out this week, and gives us two excellent doses of garage punk, "Barb Wire" and "Night Rush," in under 5 minutes. A stream of the b-side makes its premiere in this post, and both tracks can be streamed below.

The band's only tour dates at the moment are in Europe, including a Copenhagen show with The Men (who played NYC last night [3/5]). All of those dates are listed below...
