Allison & Moon - "Puppy Love"
Someday I'll be able to admit that there is some emo out there that I like. "Puppy Love," the latest single from Boston's Allison & Moon, is one of those songs that is going to make me admit it. When I first started listening to it, I was thinking of was to describe the song: Fast, upbeat, alterna-pop, power pop, shredding guitars, bouncy, surprisingly heartwarming yet sad and catchy lyrics... This is how I was going to describe the song. And then I saw that the tags at the bottom of the Bandcamp page included "emo." That's when I realized everything I described is the definition of emo. But even for those of us that were too old to get caught up in the heyday of emo have to admit it's not as bad as we wanted it to be. And "Puppy Love" is a great song, even if it happens to be emo.
