Canadian punk, power-trio, The Allovers, will release their debut album, Yer Guises, on May 18th with Anxious & Angry Records. Today, the band has partnered with NewNoiseMagazine.com to premiere the record’s first new song, “Rinky Dink.” Fans can pre-order the album now at http://www.anxiousandangry.com/products.
Commenting on The Allovers, guitarist/vocalist for Off With Their Heads and founder of Anxious & Angry Records, Ryan Young says, “I was doing an acoustic tour through Canada with a band called Fire Next Time. Their drummer gave me a cd of his other band and said it was more along the garage rock line. We popped it in on the drive the next day. I remember turning and saying “Did he just say Rinky Dink?” The weirdness of it all was pretty consuming. 2 listens later, I had a new favorite band.”
Formed in 2011, the Edmonton/Calgary hybrid, made up of guitarist Matt Pahl, bassist Paul Arnusch (The Wet Secrets, Faunts, The Whitsundays) and drummer Garrett Kruger (Fire Next Time), has a way of combining genres that’s unique to them, all the while writing songs that either make you think twice or not think at all.
With titles like “Dog Team Cooperation,” “Hitchcock Twist,” and “Rinkydink” (a song written from the perspective of a breaking down lawnmower as a comment on the cheapening of the modern world), The Allovers have levels that belie their lighthearted exterior. With punk structures reminiscent of The Ramones, melodies and harmonies cut from the same jib as Burt Bacharach or The Everly Brothers and sonic textures entering similar territory as Thurston Moore, The Allovers are guaranteed to hook you, move you, then keep you singing along for years to come.
