Punk has been around for a while now. It’s sometimes easy to forget that at one point, it was just a different breed of rock, played with a more furious mood. Boss’ Daughter is a new band that builds the feel of classic punk, the kind that emerged as a particularly manic offshoot of pop and rock music.
“I wasn’t trying to write catchy-ass songs,” said guitarist-vocalist Chris Fox. “They sound how they sound.”
“Yeah, you were,” countered bassist Danny Paul.
“We just want to achieve maximum party time,” said drummer Jamie Locks, while holding a beer with one hand and trying to light Fox’s jeans on fire with the other.
Whether Fox merely feigns indifference to his music’s melodic, upbeat elements, or if he’s truly disinterested in labeling his sound, there’s no denying the catchiness of Boss’ Daughter’s songs. Pop-punk in the early days didn’t have to reach very far, because the genres have always had more in common than either would prefer to let on.
