Pop Rock from Beautiful Dudes
I know I know…the name Beautiful Dudes is a bit braggadocios…and possibly not even true depending on your standards of tastes…but the song people, the song. It’s this huge heavy pop rocker that definitely recalls a blend of punk attitude with arena rock pretense. The first few times I heard it I couldn’t help but think that these guys would have been the perfect backing band on Joey Ramone’s solo effort. It feels energetic, though not overly forceful as some loud rockers go; it revolves around the central harmony, circling and blasting through your ears in the best way. They’ll be releasing their sophomore effort, Radio, on Mama Bird Recording Co on November 8th.
