THE MIGHTY FINE - BROTHERS AND SMUGGLERS

CREATOR-DESTRUCTOR RECORDS

MARCH 4 2014

 

 

Mighty fine pop-fuelled guitar driven new punk-rock with crystal clear vocals and plenty of attitude. The Mighty Fine doesn’t sound like a band who aim to be stunningly original, but they are a band that are great at what they do.

 

Both openers ‘In the Clouds’ with its power-pop precision and ‘Break the Tide’ with its aggression and sharper licks are really the story of an album that delivers on all counts but fails to find that point of difference other than arguably on a ‘my songs are better than yours’ level.

 

If you love bands like Australia’s Grinspoon, Alkaline Trio or The Lawrence Arms, The Mighty Fine are as good if not better. It’s hard to dislike an album like this but even harder to gauge if you will still be listening to it in the coming years - such is life in that particular genre at the moment.

 

Closer ‘Daphne’ is as loud and frenetic as we get and as a result it’s one of the best here. If you love this scene, you’ll love The Mighty Fine.
