‘Lindsay White’ by Mixed Kid Fridays is some relatively slow, anthemic punk rock out of Southern California. “Punk rock and the plastic streets of Los Angeles have brought a new answer to fake conformity,” these guys say. “Mixed Kid Fridays will turn your daily frustration into musical ecstasy, and remind you that your life is a book. So, don’t stop reading in the middle of a bad chapter.” This band is definitely bringing a lot of cool stuff to the table. They have a gritty, kind of flamboyant proto-punk vibe that they’ve masterfully fused with a more modern take informed by genres like pop punk, indie and alternative rock. In particular, it feels like the group takes a lot from The Pixies. Their great use of the loud-soft dynamic and the understated, deeply personal aesthetic of the vocal performance add to that connection. This is a strong track from a cool band.
