CLEAN-CUTS, THE: Do-the-Pop: 7” EP

This EP is four simple pop tunes and that’s a bad thing. It’s pop in the fact it would appeal to the masses. You could throw this record on and listen to it with your grandma with, perhaps, the song “Anxiety” being a tad edgy. Everything here lacks dynamics and pulses at the mid tempo range. It’s disappointing because they have distorted guitars, hooks, and yet nothing exciting to keep the music interesting.
