New Music Critique: 131ers

Vocals 8

The musical mission of this guitar-driven, drum-powered foursome seems absolutely clear: to have fun, feel alive and take everyone along with them. Witness the bouncy beat and upbeat handclaps of the irresistible “Crazy,” feel the rumbling energy that propels the song’s chorus, and it’s clear this is a unit that is smart and confident in its playfulness. Another bold beat drives “Don’t Wanna Go,” pushing its melodic, infectious power right up until the song’s a cappella climax. The band then downshifts on the slow-burning song “Ballerina,” demonstrating a soulfulness, depth and vocal versatility that is impressive. Each track is rendered with an extreme clarity that helps these songs to come alive.
