With surging energy and a consistently upbeat sound, The Soft Pack’s music occupies a world where late-summer beach barbecues abound, but not without some punk flair and a bit of swagger. Upbeat guitars and minimal but hooky drums (delivered by a drummer who performs standing up, no less) give the band their distinct garage-rock sound. Partnered with nonchalant vocals delivering at times angst-y, at times quite playful lyrics mixed in with oohs and aaahs, The Soft Pack’s sound makes for feel-good music that isn’t always about feeling good. Stream and download “Answer to Yourself” for free, and check them out tonight at Great Scott.
