As you most likely have noticed, Boston has a great garage rock/power pop scene that we cover. A lot. If you're into that sort of thing, then you're going to love The Dents. The Dents have the heavier side of power pop covered. "Homeless" is a hard edged rocker that dips its toe into grunge territory. But, it's still oddly catchy and melodic. If anything, the crunchy guitars and all out fuzz doesn't quite fit the vocals. While Jen D'Angora and Michelle Paulhus have plenty of punk edge to their vocals, their harmonizing shouldn't fit with the driving force of the music. Except that it does. Perfectly.
You can listen to "Homeless" below. The Dents' self-titled album will be out June 4 on Rum Bar Records. You can pre-order a copy over at Bandcamp. For more on The Dents, check out the band's Facebook.
