A double dose of power pop-infused punk rock from Justin, Richie, and friends is what you get on the new Clorox Girls 7”. The formerly Portland (and formerly Bay Area) -based Clorox Girls have settled in to Los Angeles quite nicely, recording these tunes at San Pedro’s Cali Mucho studio with (now bassist for the band) Kid Kevin and co-released by the Pedro studio’s label, 45 RPM. Poppy, bouncy, singalongs with the best harmonies in punk continue to make their mark with tunes steeped in the tradition of the Dickies’ and Buzzcocks’ catchiest. Nice to hear new tunes from band following a two-year hiatus. These fit in nicely with the rest of the band’s work and hopefully serve as a teaser for a future full length.
