3D Radio EP
There’s a beauty in the simplicity of this nifty little project – four songs total, all clocking in at barely three minutes long. The strength of 3D Radio is that it’s a brash, youthful sort of power/pop-punk that calls to mind the semi-classic New Jersey tones of acts like Gaslight Anthem, old-school Saves The Day, and underground mavens Static Radio. The Reveling have a solid sound rooted in a disdain for flash, complete with a tight rhythm section and tough guitar lines that are bereft of pomp. Fronted by “The Faces We Know” and its stellar line, “Where we’ll go, I don’t know, but it’s kind of like a preemptive strike on the mundane and perfectly normal,” these are rousing tunes pumping with proletarian heart and passion. These youngsters apparently have a strong grasp of punk fundamentals – big gang vocals, fist-pumping tunes, high energy, and straightforward song construction – and that makes me excited to hear what they’ll create next.
