IMPULSE INTERNATIONAL, THE: Point of Action: CD

Jan 12, 2010

Think Exploding Hearts, but I’d bet a bag of gummy peachy rings that this band also likes the Barracudas and the Undertones. Here’s the thing about reviews. There are plenty of bands that aren’t bad and that plenty of people would like, but they fail the “jump up and down and have a mini-solo dance party test” for me. And sadly, this is one of those bands. Maybe I’m wrong. I mean, they have a single on Mutant Pop. They have all the right reference points, and I’d definitely go see them play, but if this were a cereal, it’d be Fruity Pebbles. The concept is there, and I’d grab a handful if someone offered it, but I wouldn’t buy it.
