SHOWOFFS, THE: Noma Beach: 7″

The music here is fast, energetic punk that reminds me of The Motards. I only wish the singer was the same. This is a good 7”, but the singer is just a little too monotonous. A snotty vocalist would fit this band well; however, this guy just yells along at the same pitch throughout all four songs. It’s kinda like he is reading the lyrics for one of the first times as he sings and is just yelling them out without knowing when to add a little emotion or inflection in his voice. I could karaoke this album better than him. Just a little added passion and dynamics in the vocals would do wonders for this band.
