NOX BOYS: Self-titled: CD

May 20, 2014

Upon first glance at their cover art, Nox Boys seem heavily influenced by 311. However, their sound is more rock’n’roll with Spaghetti Western undertones. This is especially apparent on the track “Susie Lee” which I enjoyed because it conjured images of pompadours and sock hop romance. However, the rest of the album tends to blur together into one long and little-varied song. The slurred out lyrics don’t say much of anything. In fact, the last track, aptly titled “Save Me,” was so repetitive in their plea of “you gotta save me” it left me throwing my hands up in the air from frustration wanting to know “From what?”
