The Week In Music: The Front Bottoms
A few miles and many years north of Saves The Day, is another Jersey band that packs massive amounts of words and heart into three-minute pop songs.
This week, “Talon Of The Hawk“, marked the return of The Front Bottoms. Everything here is tighter and more focused than their full length debut two years ago. Gone is some of the violence and sex, making way for more pointed lyrical gems like “I want to be stronger than your dad was for your mom” and “goodbye future once so bright, meet my pregnant girlfriend“.[spotify id=”spotify:album:3Whyz0vsFG5AdcSzlgC3k0″ width=”300″ height=”380” /]
