New Jersey surf/punk band Livewires have released their new album Onfim Goes to War via Smacktone Records [iTunes link]. Want a taste? You can check out the new song "The Weight I'm Feeling."
But before you do, a word from our sponsor.
Distilling the sounds of punk, surf and garage, Livewires make smart and catchy indie rock. The young outfit is made up of childhood friends Brian Wiseman (guitar, vocals), Tom Pernetti (drums), and brothers Chris and Mike Martinez (bass and guitar, respectively).
Livewires, who craft bright, catchy songs, have titled the new album in honor of an inspiring young hero of theirs. In the 1950s, archaeologists discovered ancient Russian birch bark drawings that had been preserved for centuries, dating back to the Middle Ages. Some of these drawings were made by a six-year-old student named Onfim who, amidst writing his lessons from class and practicing his alphabet, would daydream and sketch fantasies of becoming a warrior and going to battle.
The music is super summery!
With all this in mind, enjoy.
