Big Boss, “May Not Be Strong”

Jes Skolnik

Big Boss Demo '15

If, like me, you’re already feeling that the first few weeks of 2016 have been extraordinarily heavy, this new hardcore anthem by a Siberian one-woman project called Big Boss may help provide the energy to power through. Harsh and strident, this short and furious track channels the best of Japanese noisecore-style song structure and recording and heavy NYHC-style riffs (an Outburst cover finishes out the short but essential demo) and adds lyrics about persistence at the very point where one feels one has no strength left, a necessary flip of the script to macho hardcore tropes that brag on a constant (and often puffed-up) display of strength.

Demo ’15 is available for free via Big Boss’ Bandcamp. You can stream “May Not Be Strong” below.
