On their first song, What the Kids Want remind me of the female-led parts of Cleveland Bound Death Sentence and Astrid Oto. It’s excited, enthusiastic poppy punk with vocals that could be interpreted as either annoying or charming depending on how you want to look at it (I like ‘em). The second song mellows out and rides a nice early ‘90s indie pop vibe. They’re a solid band with some really good songs. Dear Nora, as far as I can tell, is one woman singing and playing guitar. That could also be interpreted as annoying, I’m sure, but I really liked it. I’ll probably get beat up for saying that, but it’s the truth. She has a really pretty voice and it doesn’t sound like a high school talent show. Cool split.
