“Too Good,” our first exposure to Portland emo combo Snow Roller, lived up to its name. Absolute Punk offered up a second single called “Cycling” today, and it does nothing to dispel my excitement for the upcoming What’s The Score. It’s urgent, ragtag rock music with chiming high-end guitar parts that bop with a heavier groove than emo bands usually allow themselves. The clap-along chorus could almost pass for the Strokes if not for Tyler Bussey’s nasal tenor spinning sensitive couplets amidst the ruckus.
What’s The Score is out 3/25 via Broken World Media. Pre-order it here.
