Boston's JVK have always blurred the lines of indie rock and pop, but never quite as much as they do with their latest single. "Grinding My Teeth" has more power behind it than your typical pop song. It actually leans quite heavily into the worlds of punk and metal at times. It's a loud and amplified song, but singer Jo Krieger's vocals are far better than you normally hear in indie rock, punk, or metal. That's truly the secret power of JVK. They play loud and abrasive music, and Krieger's vocals end up smoothing things over to a much more palatable sound, while still somehow complimenting the volume.
