We don’t know much about Debtors Union, but what we do know has been pieced together by social networking feeds.The band played its first show last month. They’re former members of four distinct Long Island bands (the Ambition, Divider, Crime in Stereo, and Robbers). And they’ve just released their Tonight We Feel Alive EP for free on their PureVolume page this week.

Clocking in at just under ten minutes, the three songs on Tonight We Feel Alive are full of that nostalgic mid-to-late 90s punk sound (think Hot Water Music and Samiam) matched with the slow-burn intensity that’s become synonymous with LIHC.

“Home” is a straight forward song about being homesick on tour, “Brace for Impact” is Debtors Union at its most melodic (with guest vocals by Kristian Hallbert of Crime in Stereo), and “A Damn Shame” is raw with passion. Eric Kuster’s voice is rough enough around the edges to hold angst but not so abrasive that it can’t carry melody, guitarists Nick Kalolekas and James Hagmaier drive the songs forward with their two complementing (not competing) styles with support from bassist Mike Musilli and drummer Carl Yarsinske.

Tonight We Feel Alive is an intense introduction to Debtors Union as a band and leaves room for growth and potential. All three tracks are similar in pace and tone, but at best it shows that as musicians, they know what works for them and what doesn’t. They’re not trying to reinvent the genre. They’re giving us their own interpretation.
