REVIEW album The Getarounds I Wanna Live

Vancouver’s The Get Arounds Release Gritty Power-Pop Album “I Wanna Live”

I Wanna Live

The Getarounds

Vancouver’s premiere power-poppers The Get Arounds have just released their new full-length album, I Wanna Live. Their songs meander from revved up numbers that seem to be pulled from The Dead Boys Young Loud and Snotty into hits with melodic choruses that call to mind power-pop classics like Nikki and the Corvettes.

Their female-fronted angst fills the songs with 90’s style punk-grit that are reminiscent of L7, Bikini Kill or Babes in Toyland. The new single seems to draw on what Carman describes as the band’s Influences - Ace Frehley, Sex Pistols, Steve Earle, and Blondie.
