Local Record Review: Her Voice Remains
It's a promising start for an enjoyable, kick-up-your-heels kind of a listen the four-song effort provides, each track sounding very much like it should be soundtracking something in a John Hughes film without simply cloning it. If songs such as the romantic surge of "Run Away" and the gentler swing of "Eternally" are working in a familiar form, then the rhythm section of Jeffrey P. and Stefan Veselko keep up a brisk kick and pace--you get a feeling the band want to actually bring the full effect onstage.
Still, it has to be said there is something straight-up mood-setting in calling the final song "Of the Sickness, Of the Swoon." But that it bursts out the gate as a cleaner, brighter-sounding take on classic punk-rock punch shows that if you're coming for morose moans, this isn't the band. And good on them for that.
