I LOVE this band! This is PERFECT homage to late 70s UK powerpopping punk and it is not for everyone. Certainly, it IS for me!Fan of The Undertones? You are styling! This is a project from guys who were in The Briefs, another fave band of mine the last 5 years, too. This has the attitude of punk, the style of mod and the polish of power pop. The Cute Lepars churn out a succession of two-to-three-minute gems, one after another, on and on until the 11 songs are finished and the new-found fan of the band is perfectly satisfied. Whipped Creamed punk rock sundae, please? "4 stars. They blend skinny-tie, new wave and power pop but with a little less punk and added girly background vocals. Compared to The Briefs, they also move to a little further into the 70s, taking in mod revival influences and even elements of sanitized charts acts of the day such as The Knack and The Cars."-Record Collector.
Equally influenced by first wave punk, mod-revival, power pop, with the spirit of Johnny Thunders...together with occasional hints of doo-wop, early 60`s rock `n` roll and a load of female back-up vocals.
"Their Pop sensibilities shine through in their unashamedly retro tunes in short sugary blasts." - Big Cheese
"This is exactly the type of hook-laden short, sharp shock modern music needs at the moment - a warning shot across the bows to all wannabe stadium rockers." – Popmatters
