The Promise Ring + The Dismemberment Plan = Maritime. I was never a big fan of either band, but I just made it all the way through their new album, We, The Vehicles, without skipping a song. And that’s quite a feat for me
MP3: Maritime – Parade of Punk Rock Tshirts
It’s weird. There’s nothing really incredible about Davey von Bohlen’s voice, but yet it’s almost comforting to my ears. It combines with a catchy melody to draw you into the song. But really, the same could be said about most of the elements of the song. There’s some jerky guitar that seems like it’s a post-punk guitar player that applied his skills to a beautiful pop song; and there’s a great bass line that unfortunately gets swallowed up in the mix.
