Greenhaven
‘Southbound’

Greenhaven's two-song seven-inch single debut proves that hard rock and melody need not be mutually exclusive and actually make fine bedfellows — and we're not talking namby- pamby hair metal-style either. The new quartet, fronted by former Windigo singer Matt Strangwayes, rocks with wild abandon on “Southbound,” a musically driving tune about truck driving (fancy that) and attendant roadside adventures. The B-side “Supernature” lacks the adrenaline rush of its sister song due to a plodding tempo, but it does give guitarist Jay Hofer a chance to show off some fancy fretwork. Appropriately pressed on green vinyl, this single whets the appetite for more music from Greenhaven.
