We Never Asked For This – Dead Sara

We Never Asked For This is our short review of a release that showed up in our inbox unsolicited.

How refreshing it is to hear a four-on-the-floor rock n’ roll song that drives straight and true like this track from Dead Sara. There are hints of indie rock and wisps of metal, most notably singer Emily Armstrong’s full throated scream (which can impressively switch to delicate melodies on a dime), but at the end of the day this is capital Rock and capital Roll with big soaring choruses and strong hooks throughout. Clocking in at a not-fucking-around, no filler time of 3:25 the song was over before we knew it, leaving us wanting more. And if that ain’t good rock n’ roll we don’t know what is.*

*we do know. It’s this.
