"It's been a long time / since I rock and rolled / But you never forget / how to do that stroll," exclaims Draft Week vocalist/guitarist Kevin McNamara with a knowing wink to Led Zeppelin during his band's sultry "Give In To Me," and it's a telling line that gives some insight into the quartet's fervent energy and back-alley cool. A lot of bands who claim to wave rock's gnarly, pedal-to-the-metal flag forget the intricacies and innovation that go along with it. True: Sometimes a great rock and roll song can be just four chords, but rearrange them all you like and they can only get you so far. What's refreshing about Draft Week's style is that they incorporate rich dynamics and throw a wrench in atypical song structures, while still remembering to keep things consistently hooky and worthy of massive sing-a-longs.
