DUTCH RUDDERS, THE: On Verra: CD

Mar 29, 2016

Does everyone know what a Dutch Rudder is? Based on The Dutch Rudders name and its meaning, I was expecting some immature, juvenile punk rock like the Queers or something. Luckily for me, this is a little better than the name led me to believe. Songs offer a tuneful, dual-guitar attack with gruff, strained vocals in the kind of way that kids at Fest would love, while other songs sound more traditionally pop punk, often ending up sounding kind of like The Dopamines. It’s certainly derivative, although I can certainly relate to the tormented, bummer side of where this is coming from lyrically.
