CD Review: Summertime Dropouts Provide The Perfect Summer Soundtrack
The album begins with the first single “Full Time Cutie” as you notice a maturity to their songwriting. The tempo is upbeat and their lyrics and hooks are undeniable. The song “1999” appears twice on the album, first as an all-out punk-rock attack, then again at the end of the album as a slow ballad. Songs like “Getaway” and ”Spring Flings” are fun to listen to and bring you back to a time in your life when things were simpler. The album also contains the arena rocker “Put Em Up” and the Top 40 sounding pop hit “Amie.”
The album was produced by Clint Gibbs (Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, Britney Spears) and was released through Voluminous Records. The Summertime Dropouts have a couple of shows scheduled in August, but be sure to check out their facebook page (facebook.com/SummertimeDropouts) for more information.
