Here Comes Tomorrow
Here Comes Tomorrow Thrill Squad Ape No Kill Ape Records Review by Pieter Hofmann There's just something about power-pop. It always sounds better loud and naïvely positive, and Here Comes Tomorrow is no exception. From the ashes of one of the more pleasurable Vancouver indie-pop bands of the '80s, Go Four 3, comes Thrill Squad, sturdily equipped with their latest EP. Part Buzzcocks, part Hoodoo Gurus, with a splattering of the Wedding Present, and definitely mod-influenced, the quintet deserves a space on any pop-junkie's shelf. But, while influences are abundant on Here Comes Tomorrow, the band sounds totally fresh and centered in their pop abandon. Fronted by Roxanne Heichert, the group blasts through the half-dozen sugary tracks without a cavity. The quintet open up their six-song bag of treats with generosity. If you're a sucker for sweets, proceed to the candystore.
