Busy Signals “s/t”

Touching on several overlooked styles that have only recently become appreciated, the Busy Signals are an unstoppable explosion of so many great nuances that it will literally make your head spin.    With their instantly gratifying buzzing sound firmly rooted in original formula high-energy pop without a side of the feyness usually along for the ride, they have developed an incredible knack for weaving in bass lines and backup vocals that rekindle the magic created by first-wave Belgian punk bands right alongside the refreshing twists of primordial glam.    This all comes together to concoct a blend of “real deal” punk so enthralling you’ll be surprised at how bleak your outlook on life was before you were exposed to it, and you’ll quickly realize how passable everything else seems to sound that came before it.
