SHAMEOVER: Demo: CS

This is exactly what a demo cassette should be; a good representation of a band finding their footing and getting down a lo-fi version of what they sound like right now. The sound of Shameover is a bit of pop punk with some clean guitar twee pop for good measure. Songs are fairly strong and I could see how this band could really be onto something with a little more time together to really gel. It may be a bit of a lazy comparison, but I do not think it would be out of line to call this something like a punkier Cub. Both bands are from Vancouver—so maybe that is part of it—but the same kind of charm is in place, which is high praise coming from me. Fans of the early This Is My Fist stuff would probably find a whole lot to like here as well. –Mike Frame (Pet Dino, shameover.bandcamp.com)
