Mižerija's demo struck with its rebellious attitude, infectious melancholic vibes and heavy pop sensibilities. On first listen, the band evokes some early BOYE and KAOS demos, but charged with both a strong punk attitude and a breeze of modern dark pop/post punk freshness. If you like the melancholic and catchy sides of UK anarcho punk and ex-YU post-punk/new-wave, you must not sleep on Mižerija. There are some noisy moments here that recall the "Yes Sir I Will" Crass era, there's Honey Bane style shouted femme vocal thing going on and there are some danceable aspects in the rhythm here. This is anarcho-pop wrapped up in razor wire and updated for the new dark ages that will come!
