Neophile: The Loyalty

June 13, 2008

[embedded YouTube video above; if you can’t see it, click here]

With the arrival of warm, sunny days – finally! – I start thinking about songs I want to hear in my car, with my sunroof open and the windows down. Power-pop group The Loyalty, from upstate New York, have found themselves a spot in my personal early-summer rotation. This is largely on the strength of the track below, “On Top of the World,” with its infectious guitar riff, late-70s Journey-ish verse, and late-90s post-punk chorus and bridge. I’m also a fan of their song “Stella” and its video, above (I can only imagine it makes a lot of furries very happy).
