London based four piece Climbing Boys have released their debut 7″ Conjoining Rite on Birthday Records, and it’s every bit  the dark, powerful, post punk brilliance from the four piece that I expected. A subdued energy constantly simmers under the surface, and whilst soft harmonies on the simple chorus elevate the shuffling sneer of the verses from a dense punk melody to an almost pop sensibility, they never steer far from navigating the underbelly,  knowing what works for them, and thriving on it.
