Dudes – Somewhere close 2 U

Synconation’s favorite San Diego swag-rock band, DUDES, has released their Summer Vacation EP available for free on bandcamp. It’s a grouping of especially bright and poppy tracks that encapsulate the feeling you had when you were able to take entire seasons off from everything and evade growing up. Unlike Narcissists Anonymous, it’s not terribly cerebral but the sound is the same. “SOMEWHERE CLOSE 2 U” offers up what I would say is DUDES’ entry into mainstream radio accessibility with a catchy bassline, sparkly arpeggiated synths, some sweet distorted guitar accents, and the occasional “swag” lyric thrown in for good measure.
