BLOODTYPES, THE: Pull the Plug: CD

Apr 29, 2016

Remember how rad The Epoxies were? Miss them? Well dry those tears, dear friend! Fret not. The Bloodtypes fill that Roxy Epoxy hole in your heart, and with pleasure. This is the third release (and second full length) from this synth-science pop band. There’s so much crazy controlled chaos going on. Songs like “Panic” are so fast they’re likely to induce the very same feeling within you. “Going Away” is done in a call-and-response style and has some of the best vocal blasts, in my opinion. “Modern Love” taps into that piercing, melodic sound of the ‘80s, (i.e. Siouxie And The Banshees, Adam And The Ants). The titular track covers the struggle between becoming a Luddite or embracing the tech age. Based on the title, I bet you can guess which path they chose. If you’re in the mood for dancey, keyboard-riddled, sci-fi pop punk, look no further.
