Between distinctive chord progressions floating across an assortment of styles, Mark Blom is well establishes as a thought-provoking lyricist with a sharp wit. Addressing the ins and outs of life’s ups and downs, Blom maintains a strong knack for storytelling through catchy melodies. There might be an observation of human relationships or commentary on the irony found in drug commercials that place beautiful scenery over descriptions of horrific side effects. Teaming up with bassist Jeremy Craig and drummer Tyler Dubla, Blom brings a high level of animation to the songs. They’re folky, they’re poppy, they’re punk rock and all-around energetic.
