JEHOVAH EYES: Self-titled: 7”

Jehovah Eyes are a Swedish band that brings the rock the same way predecessors like Randy and International Noise Conspiracy have—loud, exciting, and pseudo-radical. It might not be revolutionary (in any definition of the word) to sing lyrics like “we play dead/in front of the TV set/aw-oo/sitcom freedom!” but it sure sounds awesome. It’s super catchy and clean with its choppy guitars and echoic, anthemic repeated chorus, “Sitcom freedom!” The b-side has an Urge Overkill feel to it, but rocks way harder. The lead singer belts some goofy lyrics about “living dead cities” with the group backing him up with some “waa-aahh-oooo’s.” Where they fall short in agitprop, they make up in rock and I approve of this message!
