Over And Out
A strange blend of California stained power punk (I hate to say it, but the word Offspring came to mind) and more upbeat nineties music, like the stuff played by the kids in Braid. More on the popster punkster tip, though. Slightly harsh vocals that rage, until it gets into that “quiet” part. Slow build up, verse, chorus, skip the solo, and end. It is catchy, and it is music that you can shake your head to, instead of at. The songs all drive at pretty much the same speed, and sometimes that’s the speed you need.
