Decent but unremarkable straight-up punk.

The vox are phlegmy to the point of crusty, which isn’t bad per se, but they don’t match up well with the midtempo accompaniment. Or maybe the accompaniment doesn’t match up well with the vocals. In any case, Monikers either need to pick up the pace or work on making their songs more distinct.

The guitarwork though is surprisingly lyrical, but any interesting riffing is dampened by the low-budget-sounding production. Good guitars go a long way in elevating a punk band from mediocrity; if they can match up their various pieces in a better way and write some tighter tunes, they may very well be the next Turtles.
