Brick + Mortar have had a rather quiet career since forming in 2008, but the duo of Brandon Asraf and John Tacon are at their best when coming together to create the title track for their second and most recent EP Bangs.
The song begins with an intense lone guitar riff, and transitions into a thick sound before leading to the catchy, though sometimes slightly contradictory lyrically chorus. The song has a unique Rock sound, which is difficult to pull off in a genre so vague with common similarities between artists.
While the vocals feel pitched well throughout most of the song, the bridge feels out of rhythm and a bit too raw in comparison to the earlier parts of the track. The opening track to the EP does give a reputable preview of what to expect from the remaining songs, though “Bangs” is the clearcut winner in quality.
Overall, I would rate the song at:
