The Front Bottoms are a punk band that uses acoustic guitars, indie-rock dance grooves, Springsteen-y keyboard lines (this they might deny). It's hook filled, it's anthemic, it's confessional. Maybe Neil Young by way of Green Day? They must have heard some Replacements along the way and it seems like what Jonathan Richman and the Modern Lovers did for the Boston suburbs these guys are doing for Bergen County, NJ. Their songs are short little gems filled rich hooks and clever rhythms that inspire sing-a-longs in their almost always packed house.
