Diet Cig – “Pool Boyz”
Pop-punk has seen a recent resurgence in the music scene, and I couldn’t be happier about it. Diet Cig is a two piece from New Paltz, New York that has managed to capture that 90’s era, under produced sound on their EP, Over Easy. “Pool Boyz” stands out among the 5 song album. Singer Alex Luciano’s imperfect vocals, and 3 chord static melody hum warmly to the beat of Noah Bowman’s drums. Occasional outbursts of bass heavy distortion add layers to the short, insanely catchy song. While Diet Cig are still young to the scene, it’s going to be interesting to see how they grow with time.
