Album Review: The Touchy Feelies “Out of Time EP”

Leah Brzezinski, contributor 

It’s the feel good, melodic pop- punk sleeper hit of the season! Equal parts fun, cute and badass make for blasting this Los Angeles- based quartet’s four song EP like biting into a perfectly sweet slice of watermelon.

Throaty female vocals, catchy choruses, simple major chords, pleasing harmonies, driving drum beats and indulgent guitar solos— it’s chock full of stuff I love, and proof that bands don’t always have to be pretentious or complex to make entertaining music.

I want “Happy Tuesday” to be my alarm ringtone, optimistic off the bat with its message of “today is gonna be the best day of my life.” “Atomic,” a nearly perfect breakup song, is followed by party track “Night Driving,” and rounded out by “Beautiful.” It’s 15 minutes of California ear sunshine.

I’ll be unashamed to be seen grinning, head bobbing, and singing along to this in traffic with the windows down all summer long.
