Black Adidas isn’t in the business of nostalgia.

Harnessing the blue-collar aesthetic of his native Burbank, CA, Courtney Ranshaw – AKA Black Adidas – churns out rugged punk rock that nods slyly to its origins without beating listeners over the head with replica or reproduction. Instead, he invites you on a sonic victory lap around the best version of punk history, paying homage to his own influences while carefully acknowledging their sway over a generation of musicians.

And, true to form, his music is unfettered. It’s uncluttered. It’s rough and tumble, and ready to go. His debut single, unabashedly titled Free Shit, is no exception. Without miring the music in commentary, Black Adidas takes aim at the prevalence of corporate sponsorship, mainstream music, and society in general.

Complete with roguish delivery and an attention to detail that overrides the deceptively simple arrangements, Free Shit is a testament to punk rock living up to its own hype – a tangible demonstration of all the genre can offer when it conceives a new box within the ever-expanding stratums of contemporary music and then thinks outside it.
