Boston trio Sneeze are getting ready to release their third full length album (and fifth release overall), Fin, due out September 13th via Tor Johnson Records (Aneurysm, Twin Foxes, Late Bloomer). Recorded once again with the renowned Justin Pizzoferrato, the band are honing in their blend of grunge, pop punk, and fuzz, adding a degree of clarity to their expanding dynamics.
The record’s first single, “Social Abrasion” opens with some tangled and pounding drums that would make Nirvana proud, it’s a propulsion that can only be achieved with member laying into their parts. Derek Desharnais’ (guitar/vocals) voice comes ringing out in snotty pop fury, somewhere between strained and emotive, the sound that pushes the pop into the otherwise overdriven stomp. It’s the type of song you could see teens screaming along to as learn to embrace something new, something a bit more advanced.
