Wall Of Sound Presents: “2022 YEAR IN REVIEW” by Pincer+’s Josh Ang

Pincer+ band Greyscale Records

Pincer+ arrived fresh on the scene out of Perth just a couple of months ago with the announcement of their signing to Greyscale Records, and already they have made a massive impression with their November debut EP release, Hunting God Tapes. Vol. 1: Violence.

Sonically anchoring their roots in aggressive hardcore while breathing new life into the genre with its eclectic influences, ‘ANGELDUST lead the way before ‘Ugly On The Skin made its entrance via triple j’s The Racket shortly after. The band also played their first gig supporting Justice For The Damned and Kublai Khan on the hometown show.

The feisty collection was impressively produced, written and recorded with in-house producer and guitarist Josh Ang, with drum and vocals recorded with Ethan McPherson at Sumo Sound Studios (Shangrila) with mix and mastering credits from George Lever of G1 Productions (Loathe, Thornhill, Pridelands).

Pincer+ is Jacson Robb on vocals, Josh Ang and Jordan Burn on guitars and Jack Nelson on drums. We snapped up time with Josh Ang to talk through his Wall of Sound Year in Review…

FAVOURITE GIG YOU PLAYED THIS YEAR

Well, we’ve only played one gig, so either way it goes, it has to be my favourite by default. I loved it because our backing tracks didn’t work and shit still SLAPPED. Got to support Kublai Khan and Justice For The Damned and End It All. So much love between people just at one show.

BIGGEST WTF OR WHOLESOME MOMENT FOR YOU/YOUR BAND

Greyscale Records being the nicest fucking label I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with.
