NO///SÉ: 7″

It took less than ten seconds for “Beach Bathroom Bingo” to seduce me to the point that I was ready to go down on my knees and beg for more. The 2012 debut album by NO​/​/​/​sé (ex-Glass & Ashes, Young Livers) was very good, but a slight change in the recording / production on this single has resulted in the band sounding even better—none of the oomph has been lost but everything just seems more together without any frayed edges. These guys are setting the standard for quality melodic punk rock with a no-nonsense, rock’n’roll-influenced approach that delivers on all levels. Even the extra track which comes via the download code isn’t too shabby either. Easily one of the best singles of 2013. For those seeking this out, and you should be doing so, 1859 is in the U.S. and Different Kitchen is in the U.K
