The teenagers in Alarmrock play infectious ska tinted punk, pretty much like Anders "Moneybrother" Wedin's old band Monster did, with brass and all that comes with it. Although these kids sing in Swedish which, in combination with their left-wing lyrics, kind of makes them into a ska Ebba Grön. I'm sure they're a riot live, listening to them on record is a bit frustrating since it just makes me wish I was seeing them live instead. It's definitely not original, nor are these songs amazing enough to earn Alarmrock a place within the higher strata of the ska punk genre. It bodes well though -there's no way I'll miss seeing these guys if I ever get the chance, there's just too much energy here to ignore.
