It’s hard to discuss For Science without mentioning the Ergs!. Formerly sharing a member, basic sound, label and tours with the New Jersey pop-punk heroes, For Science seemed to have taken their place as the Ergs!’s little brother. The two bands together could even be said to have started a revival of Ramones-core styled punk, albeit with more stylistic flexibility than predecessors like Screeching Weasel and the Queers.
They say you have to suffer for your art, so I guess what that means is losing what you love. They say that absence makes the heart grow fonder, but I think my heart has grown fond enoughLater in the record, Slover laments an overly complicated life, wishing to own only a “color tv and a mattress on the floor.” With lyrics like this, he consistently displays a talent for shining a spotlight on the vulnerable and reflective moments in life. Like a great short story writer, he can dish out strong relatable lines that hit home without coming across as overly dramatic.
While the songs are catchy and well-written and the band mostly benefits from a raw and less-than-perfect sound, the production style leaves something to be desired. The vocals are mixed low and equalized in a strange way and the drum sound is flat. This sound may have been the band’s goal, but I would prefer a clearer production style.
While Tomorrow’s Just Another Day is ultimately a flawed record, it is undeniably fun and worth a listen by any fan of catchy punk rock.
