Of Someday Shambles
Big Wheel Recreation
Jumping from energetic pistol punk to indie rock melancholy played out in slight emo whispers without missing a breath. Pop hearts beat through songs like “Animal,” while the next track, “Happier Sad,” slides into an almost western vibe… and then we’re back into that energy overdrive. Some of the songs get you singing along before you even know the words, slipping into that head-nodding groove. Nice stop/starts through some songs, reminding me a little of Knapsack, but not as clean (dirty knapsack?). It’s a hard band to pin down, but it’s sure fun to try.
