OKINAWA PICTURE SHOW - s/t - cassette review



OKINAWA PICTURE SHOW - s/t - cassette review


"OKINAWA PICTURE SHOW is the latest band of ELLY KINGDON whom we interviewed in issue two, and this tape features four tracks of pop punk that reminds me of stuff like MARTHA, PERSONAL BEST and COLOUR ME WEDNESDAY in that 90s reverbed vibe, with Elly's characteristic KATE NASH / LILY ALLEN vocal style. It's hella catchy in the choruses, especially on the first three songs, and there's some strong dual guitar play with a nice prominent lead for the most part. Songs are structured thoughtfully too, and there are some cool yet often appropriately downer lyrics about not-quite-relationships, loss, and...wrestling. A great little four track that you should pick up if you're into the aforementioned bands and / or the softer, more indie side of pop-punk."
