Modernboys Moderngirls
I Might As Well Break It
By Jessica Lewis

Looking for a rowdy good time, the cast of Modernboys Moderngirls (Akira Alemany, Brett Millius and Juan Carlos Rivas) have taken on every essence of their album title. With the beer swilling, body-swaying voice of Alemany against the backdrop of lighter pop rock, their music is something to remember. This bodes well, as there are technically only three new songs on the album, but altogether it sounds fresh, fun and raring to go. Songs such as “Stay Under” and “My Baby Says Boy, Don’t You Ever Go” shine for their lyrical repetition and catchy choruses, respectively. With the kind of spirit that could make a ship full of seasick sailors feel well enough to rock out to the point of sickness all over again, MBMG have reached their goal and remain a band with a promising future.
