5. Killin' It
Upstate New York five-piece Polar Bear Club’s cold city punk sets the perfect tone for a wintry house party. Front man Jimmy Stadt traded in the abrasive, post-hardcore sound of past efforts for a more vocal-chord friendly delivery. Tight, punchy choruses and Chris Browne’s Midwest guitar styling remain forefronts of their toe-tapping sound.
Their recent release “Death Chorus” is a bounding and boisterous pop-punk record from front to back. Stadt speaks candidly on the betraying lure of nostalgia and relationships with a cheeky wit. The band’s shy, unassuming personas legitimize lines about loss and baggage in even the most heavy-handed tracks. The line up and vibe has changed but their dedication to the art remains as solid as it has ever been.
