If I had to pigeonhole Dead Identities' sound (I suppose I don't have to, but I'm an asshole like that) I'd say they were a pop-punk band in a `90s Epitfat sort of vein. All the songs on Music for the Waiting Room are relatively brief with a good sense of melody that tend to build up into anthemic choruses full of "whoa-oh"s with some slight nods to third wave ska progressions peppered here and there reminiscent of that era. Considering the saturation of this type of music in its heyday, it can be hard for bands to still work within those conventions and produce something original and compelling. Luckily for Dead ID, while they do stick to standards of the genre to an extent, they have good knowledge of classic pop songwriting (as displayed in their Beatles cover, "It's Only Love") and enough minor stylistic deviations to create a solid debut album.
