EP Reviews: Loud Fast n Cute; You’re So Kool; & Pank!!!

Titles:  Loud Fast n Cute (BandCamp); You’re So Kool (BandCamp); Pank!!! (BandCamp)
Artist:  The Cherry Icees (BandCamp)

The Cherry Icees are a fun, bubblegum pop punk band and that’s about all I can tell you about the band.  So far the online presence I’ve been able to find for the band is their BandCamp page, which is a shame because these guys are really good.  Since the beginning of the year, the band has released four EPs—Loud Fast n Cute, You Can Take Me Out b/w Yes It Does (both of which also appear on Loud Fast n Cute), You’re So Kool, and Pank!!!.  When played back-to-back, the EPs sound like a cohesive record.  The songs are silly and catchy with an air of the bubblegum pop and rock of the ‘50s and ‘60s mixed with a healthy dose of the Ramones and The Briefs.  If you are a fan of pop punk, bubblegum pop and rock, or any of the aforementioned bands, then I highly suggest giving The Cherri Icees a listen.  I think you’ll like what you hear.
