With a sound recalling early English new wave, like The Jam, as well as later day power pop heroes, The Exploding Hearts, The Biters hit the same power pop sweet spot that made the debut record by fellow ATL residents, Gentlemen Jesse and His Men, such a pleasurable listen a couple years back. It’s all there on “Hang Around,” the band’s debut single, a track which combines blazing guitar lines and a Friday night is fun night attitude with just the right amount of gutter-punk dirt to create an instant air guitar anthem. You gotta turn this one up and jam it.
