Fashion Week are a band from new York that plays a mixture of noise rock, hardcore and grunge and this is a review of their 2015 album "Pret-a-Porter" which was released by Solar Flare Records.
A very distorted reverb sound starts off the album before going into more of a raw and heavy noise rock direction along with some clean singing vocals and all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and the vocals also bring in a great amount of aggressive hardcore style screams at times.
You can hear quite a bit of mid 80's to early 90's elements in the bands musical sound and some of the tracks also bring in a small amount of spoken word parts and when guitar leads are utilized they are very melodic sounding solos that still have the rawness of hardcore and grunge and some of the tracks also bring in a small amount of clean playing at times and the songs stick to mostly a slow to mid paced musical direction and also have early alternative rock influences before the genre went mainstream and some songs also use a small amount of keyboards.
Fashion Week takes the mid 80's and early 90's styles of hardcore, noise rock and grunge and mix them together on this recording to create a sound that is very heavy and raw yet melodic and almost radio friendly at times, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover real life themes.
In my opinion Fashion Week are a very great sounding mixture of hardcore, noise rock and grunge and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Fendi Bender" "Summer Line" and "Haute topic". 8 out of 10.
