Live @ WKDU: Holiday Shores

Wednesday, December 1, 2010 - 5:30pm

Likely due to their home state, name and penchant for upbeat chord progressions, Florida's Holiday Shores draw comparisons to a slew of feel-good bands like Wavves, Beach Fossils and the Beach Boys, to name a few. But writing them off as surfer-dude tunes misses the mark. The band wisely tempers sunny melodies with a healthy dissonant sheen, such that each carefully-crafted pop melody comes wrapped in warm blanket of sonic discord usually reserved for more downbeat music.
