Garage pop-punk band The Sweethearts just released a new self-titled EP that is sure to shake some ground.
The album is electrifying, raw, and thoroughly beguiling. Their opening song, “You Don’t Call” is utterly melodic, while still keeping a hard and steadfast style that is heavy and rhythmic. The guitar solo in “Hung Under” is dynamic and absolutely thrilling. Even The Sweethearts’ cover of The Outcasts’ “Loving You Sometimes” takes the original ’60s garage band’s song and gives it a rejuvenating modern twist that also serves as a testimonial to the classic song.
Surprisingly impressive from beginning to end, the album’s sound revolves around the garage punk/pop genre, but still maintains some different and captivating diversity.
