Car Chase City’s “A Sober Sense of Reality” shines in all its post-punk glory. They can easily join the ranks alongside the likes of Green Day. I’m Not Drunk (I’m Just Feeling a Little Strange) is the welcome prologue to this well rounded EP. Revved up engine guitars and machine gunfire drums till the ground for confident power vocals.
This can be felt again in Reality—which once again reminds me of Green Day’s Jesus of Suburbia. Standing out on all tracks is the aggressive, wanna fight percussion. One Less Thing is a prime example, and my personal best bet for airplay.
One Less Thing as well as Reality bring to mind A Plastic Rose in vocal and melodic execution. This is an alternative rock collection must have. Noelle Ellis, GiggingNI.com
