Hailing from Purchase, NY Sirs have made a remarkable first impression with their debut EP, Vas Deferens. The music is a blend of punk rock and indie rock that results in an aggressive outpouring of emotion both vocally and musically that sets this band apart from all the others on the scene.

The leadoff track, "Starting at the Chin" is a fast moving, melodic juggernaut that features loud, piercing vocals and a flurry of guitars that will leave you wondering how these guys put all these remarkable sounds together. "Ready, Boomerang" is another frenetic pleasure with a mix of aggressive guitars and passionate vocals that packs in alot for a track that is only 1 minute and 35 seconds in length. "Is This Your Shirt?" is a little more mellowed out than the other songs we heard previously with chilled out guitars and pleasant sounding rhythms to give the listener a little bit of variety in the process.

The remainder of the disc's tracks "Hibernations Sometimes", a mixture of rock hard rhythms and slowed down melodies, "You're Gonna Be Great!", which features an incredible transition from mid-tempo melodies to harder edged breakdowns, look for it on the last half of the track, and "Hand Check, No Hands", a track that blends together all the rhythms we've heard before and mixes them together in one, cohesive package gives the prospective listener a clear impression of what sound to expect from the band, especially if they aren't familiar with the band at all.

All in all, a great listen from Sirs, who are sure to be a welcome addition to your iTunes library, and have a very promising future ahead of them.
