The Sainte Catherines "Fire Works"

(Anchorless) The nice thing about being a ’77-style punk band instead of a pop punk band is that even if you have some cookie-cutter moments the fact that your gravelly, aggressive vocals make you scary commands attention in a way that whiny nasal singing guys never will. Which is interesting because the damaged vocal chords here are grunting out some pretty emo-style stuff– not only content wise but utilizing the verbose thesaurus lyrics and full sentence song titles that thrived with emo and emo-esque “hardcore” bands so often in the last 15 years. My favorite song was the one where he wanted to be alone watching sports…but did he really want to be alone?
