This duo from Boston delivers catchy, yet gritty garage rock. Brandon Hagen and Drew McDonald just released the debut album ‘Antics’. The album is a collection of crunching garage pop anthems, spiced up by waves of metallic guitar riffs and falsettos. Aw, falsettos. The release opens with a mix of reverberant-delayed surf notes and blues-y garage, exploding every now and then in rockabilly-skiffle beats (infectous ‘Plains’). As Brandon reassured: ‘we hope to continue to build our momentum, and we have no plan of stopping anytime soon.’ That’s exactly what we wanted to hear.
First rule when you write about music: very blog post requires some research – aka stalking, but at least it is justified. During my stalking *ehm research* session for Vundabar, I came across a picture of vocalist Brandon Hagen showing off his clevage in a flower-y summer dress. How couldn’t I give them a chance?
Waiting to see you playing in London, just to share a nice pint of our finest cider.
