Bitter Grounds is a four-piece punk and ska band formed in Utrecht, the Netherlands in 2015. Fueled by a sense of angst and underground musical aggression, the band distinguishes itself by perfectly balancing melody and grit, delivering a unique mixture of high energy punk rock and raw pounding ska songs, without losing sight of the essentials of good songwriting. Bitter Grounds makes dynamic use of alternating dual vocals, backed up by straightforward guitars, edgy solos, and pumping bass lines and drums. Lyrically the band doesn’t subscribe to any particular world-view. Independent in the truest sense, the band doesn’t conform to anything or anyone.
