All Wound Up

Hero

Tooth & Nail

Pretty straightforward rock and roll here, along those upbeat energetic hardcore pop lines. Something about the delivery of the lyrics and drive of the guitar makes me think of The Get Up Kids, but there’s a punk rock distortion that keeps the comparison from becoming overwhelming. With twelve songs that barely ever break the three minute mark, All Wound Up keep a consistent beat through the tunes. Not saying that all the songs are the same speed, but even when the dynamics hit you down low, the energy keeps you moving at a nice speed.
