The title track on Bocce‘s debut album, “Good for You” unleashes a passionate alt-rock sound with fond comparisons to Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Amongst the album’s heavier tracks, “Good for You” grips with heavy guitar pulses and lyrics that yearn to tackle “the oppressive tackiness of nouveau-riche suburbia..” “‘Good for you,’ all the neighbors say,” the vocals let out, with a sarcastic-feeling vigor. The buzzing, climactic guitar additions in the verses swell enthrallingly into the blistering chorus, proclaiming “what a waste!” This is an invigorating success, through and through.
Described as “a revenge anthem about a poltergeist tormenting an ex,” the opening “Haunting You” is another standout track from the album. Playful whistling and a bass-fronted suaveness show a more pop-inclined sound, comparative to the hard rock passion of “Good for You.” Still, “Haunting You” is full of ample energy, particularly as the conversational hushed vocals build with momentum into the “I’ll be haunting you,” hook.
