Punk-rock duo, Dog Party, bring records full of poppy tunes, with melodies that hearken back to The Ronettes, paired with the catchy punk energy of The Buzzcocks.
This band is like candy for the ears—the kind of sweet stuff that goes down sugary but sticks to your teeth and probably keeps you amped for hours on end. Think Jesus and Mary Chain or Vivian Girls-styled reverb and fuzz layered with charmingly off-kilter melodies and vocals that ricochet from totally chill to totally angst-ridden.
Three kids from Sacramento who'd rather be hanging out on Beach Blvd with Redd Kross and the Simpletones throwing pop-pitches, with razor guitars, and beer-in-the-sun melodies. And when the buzz wears off, a lazy anger builds to knock you out.
