The Service Providers
The Service Providers have created a crackling bonfire of hard guitar rock, rife with unabashed pop hooks and formidable chops. These seasoned songwriters (veterans of The Posies, Sushirobo, and Ruston Mire) can’t help but be catchy as heck, treating heartbroken love songs and post-ironic party anthems with equal dexterity.
The Service Providers experience is something like stumbling into a bar fight between Blue Oyster Cult, Devo, and the Kinks—amped on adrenaline and bleeding nostalgia. Inventive guitar work, a rock-solid rhythm section, smart lyrics, and a certain swagger make this band a true pleasure, whether destroying on stage or creeping in your headphones.
