The Bare Minimum’s ‘Hollow Animals’ is roaring Ontarian punk rock rock with a deeply emotive take. These guys are “are a Toronto punk band,” they say, with “a self-heckling sense of humor.” Musically, they describe themselves as flowing from, “thrash ragers to acoustic scream-a-longs… Somewhere between irony and nihilism, The Bare Minimum subvert pop songs into meditations on bar culture, boredom, and scene politics.” This group definitely hits hard. They bring a blues- and hard rock-imbued approach to their more modern underground punk origins. The music at large, especially the riffs, are strong, but the vocals are what stand out the most. There’s a sad buzzsaw quality to them that gives the track a real sense of purpose. This is an awesome song from a great band. Check out ‘Hollow Animals’ below!
