EN

This young band was formed in Cleveland, Ohio. Ohio reminds me of vast cornfields and silos rising up at the horizon. Unfortunatly Ohio is economically in distress, an ideal breeding ground for interesting music and bands.

Musically they make indie pop/ alternative rock. Delicious and fresh sounding tunes with catchy riffs. A little like The Vaccines, Babyshambles…

‘Circling’ has a fat guitar riff with a harmonious chorus. Towards the end excessive synths sounds can be heard and for once they do not sound as in the 80’s. ‘We’ ll Come Around’ and ‘Can I Turn You On’ are guitar songs, comparable to ‘Come on Feel The Lemonheads’ by The Lemonheads.’Heydays’ is an addictive piece of music that contains abit of DNA from Sonic Youth, but with an original face. Everything sounds like it was recorded live and the material is not overproduced. A nice album.

Deze jonge band is opgericht ergens in Cleveland, Ohio. Voor mij roept Ohio het beeld op van uitgestrekte graanvelden en silo’s die aan de einder opdoemen. Helaas is Ohio momenteel economisch geen aantrekkelijk gebied. in de muziek is dat soms een voedingsbodem voor interessante bands.

Muzikaal maken ze muziek die indie pop/alternative rock kan worden genoemd. Heerlijke frisse deuntjes met soms catchy rifjes. Een beetje zoals The Vaccines, Babyshambles, etc…

‘Circling’ heeft een vette gitaarriff met een harmonisch klinkend refrein. Op het einde wordt er kwistig gespeeld met de synths. Voor één keer geen jarentachtigsynths. ‘We’ ll Come Around’ en ‘Can I Turn You On’ zijn gitaarliedjes, een beetje te vergelijken met wat The Lemonheads op ‘Come On Feel The Lemonheads’ doen. ‘Heydays’ is een verslavend stukje muziek dat wat DNA van o.a. Sonic Youth bevat, maar met een eigen smoel. Alles klinkt alsof het live is opgenomen en het materiaal is niet overproduced. Een aangenaam plaatje.

It's striking, in 'mainstream' genres no-one is making a big deal about band's similarities and their possible influences... But oh dear if you dare make EBM!
