Led by singer-guitarist Brodie Knight, this Las Vegas-based foursome have a super-tight, high-impact (if absolutely familiar) pop-punk attack that’s given a modern injection thanks to a profusion of drum triggers that gives every song a shot in the arm. In fact, each musician delivers, right down to Knight, whose singing voice has a raspiness that gives the lyrics a roughhewn edge. We appreciate the pristine production that provides clarity for each song’s message. We’re especially impressed with “Neon Alley,” a poignant, heartfelt tune that takes the listener from an acoustic, cello-imbued intro to an all-out pop-punk spree. Film/TV folks in need of pop-punk with a modern edge should check this out.
