Review: Triple Tuesdays, March 21st, 2017Written by James Cross
Welcome to another installment of Triple Tuesdays! This week we share with you Connecticut based pop-punk group Light It Up, German horror-rockers Sloppy Joe's, and Norwegian ska-punk group, Norsk Råkk.
What do you get when you combine a local pop punk band like Premier with a singer who has a powerful voice akin to Hayley Williams? The answer is Light It Up. The band from CT have recently released a video for their song "Bury Them", which although it's a very strong song could use a few tweaks to get out of that formulaic "local pop punk band" sound.
From Hamburg, the horror rock band Sloppy Joe's drop an eerie sounding single, "Right Decision". Reminding me of Stellar Corpses and other psychobilly/rock fusion projects, this band quickly gained a place in my heart. The song is from their album, Eight Reasons to Rock.
Last, but certainly not least, Norwegian ska/punk band Norsk Råkk. I have no clue whatsoever what they are saying, but I can skank to it and that's all I care about. Definitely one of the best songs to come across my desk recently!
That's all for now, folks. Until the next Triple Tuesdays!
