The Underground Railroad To Candyland – Knows Your Sins

- by Thomas

If you don’t like the band name, chances are you won’t like their music either seeing as it’s equally quirky. Fronted by Todd Congelliere, URTC is a bit like an amalgam of his previous outfits, F.Y.P. and Toys That Kill.

Think indie rock with pop-punk hooks and a garage-y feel. These guys don’t overthink their tunes. They come up with a sweet melody, throw some distorted guitars and not so serious lyrics over them and then call it a day. Oh, and sometimes they’ll throw in some surf licks for kicks. Probably to then proceed by having a couple of beers and draw sketches of the costumes they want to wear during their next show.

But just because they are a fun-loving bunch, it does not mean they don’t know how to write a good song. They have a knack for writing hooks and while not your typical punk album, they definitely keep the ideals intact. If you’re looking for a fucked up soundtrack to the summer, “Knows Your Sins” is it.
Score: 7 out of 10
