Sheer Mag - What You Want
It's always a joy to stumble across something new that immediately stands out from the crowd. Here's a new tune from Philadelphia's Sheer Mag that's worked it's way deep into my brain and will be residing there for quite some time. Is it punk? power pop? rock? indie?......it has elements of all of those genres and other's too. The song chugs along, with no particular rush in reaching it's destination, but the guitars demand your attention from the outset, the drums compliment those guitars perfectly and then the vocals kick in and you know everything is fine in the world. And on it goes, it meanders, lazy and laid back but punchy and invigorating at the same time, it's playful and it demands your attention. I don't know anything much about the band, I think they only got together earlier this year, but I know that their debut single is of 2014's best.
