The 88

Southern California’s The 88
churns out infectious power-pop brimming with saccharine vocal harmonies,
stylish quasi-retro productions, and sing-along lyrics. Much like glam-rock
forefathers T. Rex, The 88 seduces listeners with distorted guitars and
trashy boogie-rock. Meanwhile, generous spoonfuls of pop sugar help it
all go down. Of course, The 88 are more than just impersonators of pop
icons past–they also provide a refreshing swagger to contemporary pop’s
possibilities. Whether you are attempting to drown out the irritating
coworker in the next cubicle, liven up a drab subway ride, or share a
moment with friends, The 88 provide the perfect aural bubblegum for just
about any situation.
