Hot on the heels of LA three-piece Cheekface’s outstandingly witty debut Therapy Island comes a new hard charging song “Listen To Your Heart.” “No”’. Greg Katz deadpans his unique blend of self-deprecation and stingingly cogent lyrics with forceful and bouncing basslines and sharp economical guitar finding space to poke and prod. Amanda Tannen and Mark “Echo” Edwards explode into the chorus of Katz delivering a series of platitudes to a repeating negative response from his bandmates. Cheekface continue to bring a fresh and humorous approach to their brand of pop-punk with a side of a bit of pub-rock that remains delightfully warm and exuberant.
