Small Black Reptile – “Find My Arm”
Distorted guitars and vocals that sound like dirtied up with a megaphone give a lot of character to Small Black Reptile‘s new song “Find My Arm.” The track is the A-side of Small Black Reptile’s debut single released on Words On Music last month.
Baltimore’s Small Black Reptile, named after a Wire song, coats the urgency and atmosphere of post-punk with a veneer of shoegaze. On this debut release “Find My Arm” sizzles out of the gate, propelled by a C86 vibe and the biting anger at the abrupt end of a romance.
For the last three years Small Black Reptile has eschewed the live scene to focus on honing the art of the recorded song. This single documents the beginning – a first taste of an evolving artist.
