The Stolen Minks Family Boycott

The Stolen Minks Family Boycott
Family Boycott plays out as a hail of wondrous energy through these eight spunky, riotous tracks. The Stolen Minks, who come rising out of Halifax on a wave of rockabilly inklings, ’60s garage and surf punk swirls, are a quartet fit to become everyone’s new object of affection. As "Rip It Up” tears it apart with a rollicking background of keyboards and riot grrrl-inspired vocals, it quickly becomes evident that the Stolen Minks are poised to rival the best of any scene they set foot on. All members pitch in on vocal duty, giving Family Boycott varying expressive dynamics. The songs are short and textured with murky, sticky moments that are enveloped in the band’s vigour. The anthemic "Fight!” passes by in a blur of twists and shouts, while "Stop Talking” sees the band take on a highly dramatic style that shows the diversity the Stolen Minks’ can apply to their songwriting.
