UNDER THE RADAR: T-Rextasy – “I Wanna Be a Punk Rocker”

UNDER THE RADAR: T-Rextasy – “I Wanna Be a Punk Rocker” .

T-Rextasy emerged from New York to, “obliterate the patriarchy via an irresistible synthesis of punk, surf, ska, and good ol’ rock n’ roll…and never looked back.” Whilst smashing the patriarchy might take a little while, listening to their debut album, Jurassic Punk, T-Rextasty are certainly giving it a good go!

This week the quintet have shared the video for their latest single, I Wanna Be A Punk Rocker, and it finds the, “dashing dino-dames” in typically anarchic form. The song itself is a delight, from a pure-pop chorus to the more stripped bare verses where singer Lyris Faron’s clipped Life Without Buildings meets Waxahatchee vocal comes to the fore. Pop-punk, Riot Grrrl, Power-Pop, whatever you want to call it, T-Rextasy are the latest proof that music can appear light-hearted fun on the outside but still have something important to say.
