Born In A Cent are a Brooklyn/Long Island based political punk band that brings a familiar folk punk sound with their newest EP  “Far From Perfect”. Featuring ever lovable gang vocals, banjos and some sweet harmonies from brother and sister Adam and Charlene Obernauer, Born In A Cent manages to balance catchy, fun songs with a strong Anarcha-Feminist  message.

‘With Or Without You” laments the death of the activist spirit that more often than not fades out as we get older, while “Unheard Anthems”Anarchist anthem that will have you pounding at your chest. One of my favorite tracks has to be “DI WHY?” which really drives the point home of the importance of activism and community: “The greatest strength of humanity is the power to change/create the safe spaces that we all need.” Adam Wrote up a great essay about sexism in the scene and how to have  fun while not being a brute.

Far From Perfect is available on their bandcamp for download on  Be nice and support these wonderful kids.

Born In A Cent will be playing a show on Saturday, July 27th w/ Nightlights,  Halfway to Hell Club,  Censors, Warm Needles, & Pretty Bullshit. More info here
