Pura Mania are a punk band based in both Mexico City and Vancouver, and their take on the genre is a tough and frantic one. Their new Cerebros Punk EP, their first-ever 12″, is a fine piece of old-school hardcore, sung urgently and intensely in Spanish. It’s sounds like it’s recorded through a few layers of blankets, but this band has hooks, and it’s a fun listen. Check it out below, and add Pura Mania to the increasingly long list of strong, vital Spanish-language punk bands working today.
The Cerebros Punk EP is out 9/27 on Sabotage Records.
