Artist Spotlight: Pentimento
If you've heard anything about Buffalo, NY, it most likely has to do with chicken wings, a bad football team, or one of the harshest, coldest, and most uninviting winters around. You probably haven't heard about Pentimento, one of the Nickel City's up-and-coming pop-punk acts that's making quite a splash on the local scene. Taking musical influence from artists across the musical board, from Strike Anywhere to AFI to Saves the Day, Pentimento utilize infectious hooks and an irrefutable familiarity in their songwriting. The result cements these hometown heroes not only as one hell of a fun listen, but also an East Coast force to be reckoned with, likely in the near future.
So settle in next to your stereo with the peace of mind that comes with knowing you won't wake up to three feet of lake-effect snow in your driveway, and give Wrecked EP a spin - you can stream all the tracks from their debut on their Facebook, here.
