Yes, scaling-strings and a pop-punk theme, welcome to the Ten Cents Short ball.
This five-song EP is not short of anything, instead it spills over with potential. They have the elated-audio aesthetic the genre loves. Major Steps, Minor Setbacks is a blast. Ten Cents Short offers euphoria with a dash of growth.
In “Beggars,” the backing vocals add magnetism to their style and pushes this track to the standout of the album. They’ve found the sweet-spot that sates my sugar-addicted taste buds. No matter the achy-heart lyrics, this album upholds a fun demeanor. These guys could say anything and we would dance along to it. Each song is a message to the bad-guy in your life, but Ten Cents Short shows you can feel good about sending it. These upbeat artists sing about the wrongs, but serve it with ice-cream. How can you be mad when you’ve got Ten Cents Short’s hopeful vibe?
Bring on the good feelings Ten Cents Short, my sweet tooth is aching for it.
