Double Star - "Wasting Time"

When we brought you Double Star's "See It Through" last month, we mentioned that the Boston band were "punk doo-wop" and said that despite the horn section they weren't quite ska. They decided to prove us wrong on "Wasting Time." The new song ramps up the doo-wop sound we loved from the previous song. The punk is toned down and "Wasting Time" brings the funk pretty heavily. Plus, the horn section goes deeper into ska than we had heard previously. It's still not quite ska, but it's a few more steps in that direction. If you're looking for funky punk doo-wop with some ska vibes, Double Star are going to become a quick favorite.

You can listen to "Wasting Time" below. For more on Double Star, check out the band's Facebook.
