With the previous singles off The Nervous Eaters' upcoming album, I've noted that they're more on the mellow side, but since the Boston punk legends have been around for almost five decades it makes sense. With "End of the World Girl" they're bringing back the rock. It may not quite have the same edge that 70's punk had, but this is a loud rock and roll song with just a little punk flavoring. Steve Cataldo still has a great yell that is showcased here, and there is just enough fuzz behind the guitar to make this one stand out. If this isn't punk, it at least sounds like a punk band doing a faithful Creedance Clearwater Revival cover.
Steve Cataldo says of the new song:
"When I wrote 'END OF THE WORLD GIRL' last year, I had no idea the song might turn out to be somewhat prophetic. With so many world leaders talking about WW3 and atomic warfare, there’s no telling what might happen. I would say, today, right now, is the best time to 'Heat up the oven an get some Good Lovin' going on or better yet, how about a date with a 'streetwalking, sweet talking, End of The World Girl.'”
