Personally, I can’t stand bands that sound like Kid Dynamite but aren’t Kid Dynamite, so my stubborn, fanboy ass was reluctant to pick up Resonance’s Transfuse after numerous said comparisons in the past. Though, with some obvious nods to the band and the preceding and possibly more influential Lifetime, Resonance’s sound is just as rooted in the late `80s D.C. scene as New Jersey; in fact, between the perfectly imperfect nature of the unstable shouts to off-key singing and the shifty major chords (with that slight arpeggio…Dan Yemin knows what I mean), this record sounds like Embrace got back together and did a Kid Dynamite cover album. So have I found a band that’s challenged my own standards? Yes.
