For Seriously Amazing !!
Whether you haven’t dusted off your two-tone Vans in a while or you wear them every day, For Serious’ debut album Revival of the Fittest will get you skanking. From the bouncy “Awesome Song” to the Specials-esque “Pocket,” these guys cover the ska spectrum.This is not activist ska, unless you’re dealing with zombies on Match.com or a sweet jumpsuit everyone wants to steal. The forgotten-weekend remorse song “Suddenly Monday” and the bar anthem “Just Don’t Puke” (which, incidentally, may explain that whole forgotten weekend issue) are more in the vein of Reel Big Fish. But behind the none-too-serious lyrics lies some incredible musicianship. A solid horn section makes even a Buick’s breakdown sound like fun, and the band’s guitar and rhythm crew showcase a rock influence at times reminiscent of Aerosmith. Lead singer/keytarist Stephanie Biello’s voice and attitude are a welcome kickback to third-wave ska femmes like Monique Powell and Gwen Stefani.
You may not be pulling for a ska revival right now, but by the time For Serious is done with you, you’ll get their message: Get up. Have fun. Skank on.
