JOHNNY 5
PLASTIC GALAXIES
SELF-RELEASED

Synthesized punk ‘n’ roll is on the menu courtesy of the Queens. NY based Johnny 5, whose latest five-track endeavor takes a sharp left into hipsterville, complete with massive amounts of keyboards and dreamy vocals. Keeping the balance however are the Weezer meets Taking Back Sunday-esque guitar licks, like the one found on “Husher”, infusing the Devo-esque jaggedness with a shot of modern day arena rock flare. Otherwise, it’s a first-class train ticket into the glamour and guises of pop culture, complete with a dance rock backbeat courtesy of this eclectic crew with the huge ’80s sound on the brain.
