As a band, you can either look at what´s on the charts, get trendy and hope for the best or you just don´t give a shit what´s selling and instead go your own way.
That´s exactly what the Brooklyn based trio Onesie has done on their debut album "Leos Consume" and it´s a charming record too.
The band is founded by former members of The Isles and Man Without Plan and takes inspiration from British pop, American punk and classic rock.
If Crash Test Dummies were a grunge band, they could´ve sounded like the track "Everything you want and more" but there are other bands that comes to mind while listening to the entire album and they are Weezer, Beck and Barenaked Ladies.
The humorous lyrics and and the raw guitars are definitely the strength of Onesie´s music, while the singer´s limited vocal range is the weakness.
Highlights : Karaoke killers, Husbands in finance, This minstrel
