Guards - Guards EP

it's pretty rare that you find a band which actually transcends any genre classification. a new, relatively unheard of group called Guards is not such a band, but it comes pretty damn close. i can hear a bit of surf rock in the opening track, Resolution of One, from their first EP, but naming genres gets tricky after that. have a listen for yourself, since the EP is completely free to download from their bandcamp website.
