Review: Triple Tuesdays, Dec. 27th, 2016Written by James Cross
Join us for the final edition of Triple Tuesdays in 2016! This week, we have Straight Line Syndicate, Half Crown, and Ignore the Elephant.
"Borrowed Time" by Straight Line Syndicate is an upbeat pop punk song from the band's album Go Back to the 90s. There are obvious influences from 90s pop punk bands such as Green Day, Blink 182, Pennywise, and Good Riddance.
Half Crown mix a pop/rock sound with Santana-esque influences in their song "Start It Up". All that's missing is Rob Thomas - just kidding, the vocals are good. There's even a rap section of the song (I'm not kidding). These guys seem to blend styles effortlessly, I look foward to hearing more from them.
Swedish alt/emo rockers Ignore the Elephant have shared anthemic sounding track "Bruises", which brings memories of Jimmy Eat World and Kings of Leon. The band state that the song is about the "many beatings which throughout life."
That's it for this Triple Tuesdays, signing off until next year!
