Just about when we were thinking it would never happen, Dimmer Switch is giving us a new album. The group has stylistically evolved since their debut ep Not The Stereotype (2011). This record draws more from the late-nineties style punk sound and less from a hard-rock standpoint. w Letting the driving punk rock guitars guide the direction of the music, Dimmer Switch seems to have found their “sound” with this new record.
The vocals also stand tall. Front man and bassist Everett Wolfe, whose vocals I can only compare to long-defunct pop-punk groupTen Times A Day, does a great job of conveying the emotions in his lyrics, with the instrumentation following in suit. A good record to drive to, Dimmer Switch has made the wait worth it with this self-titled record.
