Beast Make Bomb | Dream Boat

May 15, 2012 at 2:02 am 3 comments

Big fan of the sound of this new single, “Dream Boat”, from the very Pretty Girls Make Graves-sounding wonder Beast Make Bomb. What I mean by that is the band has a grungy, innovative sound that feels improvised in a devil-may-care kind of way. Sure, there’s melodic guitar, but it gets scuzzed up, and the lead female vocals are punked-out epigrams delivered in a way sure to inspire angst-heavy crowd sing-alongs. The song reaches its height right at the heavy scream (3:07), giving way to a fabulously freaked-out guitar line. It’s anthemic, and makes me wish for the days when PGMGs’ Andrea Zollo would sing out, “Do you remember what the music meant?!?” (Yes, I do.) “Dream Boat” is easily one of my favorite singles of 2012. The band plan on releasing a group of singles this year, so be on the look out. You can follow the band at facebook or stream some tracks at soundcloud. Be sure to stream their 2010 five-song EP, “Skinny Legs”, at bandcamp. — David D. Robbins Jr.

    Thanks to this entry I have totally fallen in love with this band! I was hoping to make it to NYC to see them yesterday but it didn’t come together. They’ll be playing here in DC in October. Thanks much for this tip!
