Pawns – “Damascus”

New York band Pawns are a product of the DIY punk and hardcore worlds, but their sound is a brooding, intense take on the dark, gothic postpunk of the early ’80s. We posted their early single “The Cross,” and their debut album The Gallows is coming later this week. Below, check out another song, a flinty and sharp brooder called “Damascus.”

The Gallows is out 7/28 on Mass Media Records.
