The Halogens – The Resolution EP – Review

The Halogens

The Resolution EP (Simba)
by Tim Den

More radio-friendly post-punkers discovering shoegazer, trip-hop, and (yipe!) Third Eye Blind. Bop-able, surely to attract females, but predictable from start to finish. It ain’t as offensive as half the shit on the air, but the songs are so comfortable you can almost feel the puppet strings being pulled. Not every pop song has to reinvent “the vocal melody,” but some of ’em (like the ones presented by The Halogens) just sound too damn easy. And let’s not even mention the $2.25 attempt at “electronic dabblings.”
