Opening track, and forthcoming single Toothpick gets the record off to a moody start, (calling to mind bands like Rancid at their most bitter and twisted) it's the story of the sorts of revenge fantasies that follow the end of a relationship. The video for the single was conceived and directed by vocalist / rhythm guitarist Ilya Naishuller.
An album doused in youthful anger, and fuelled by an inability to accept what appear to global injustices, Biting Elbows thematically packs a punch. Rabid Red contemplates police violence, Dustbus, untrustworthy government scheming. Conversely, album closer One Night In '99 boasts about the closeness in the punk rock community and the great influence that music can have. Naishuller sings 'I crawl up three flights of stairs like half a zombie... tell me the name of that ridiculously awesome band'.
