There are lots of punk, indie, and heartland rock reference points to toss around when you’re describing Philly rockers Restorations. New single “Tiny Prayers,” though, reminds me of one band in particular, and that band is the recently reunited Constantines. “Tiny Prayers” surges like that band’s signature track “Young Lions” as refracted through the bleeding-hearted stadium punk of bands like the Gaslight Anthem. The noise swells and relentless rhythm are amplified by the emotional torrent that’s coursing through all of LP3. Listen below.
LP3 is out 10/28 on SideOneDummy.
