Quite often, "pop-punk" gets used to describe something that's actually indie rock (see:Swearin', Japandroids), which can trigger a lot of negative biases amongst people who are fairly certain they're not into the former. The difference lies in tone: pop-punk evokes palm-muted power chords with clean distortion and nasal vocals, whereas indie rock is most associated with shambling, jangly and fuzzy guitars with drawling vocals. Iron Chic gives youboth. At their core, each of Iron Chic's The Constant One's ten proper tracks builds on revved-up progressions of three or four chords, spaced out for broad melodies and strummed almost exclusively in air-guitar accommodating 16th notes. During the relative jams of "Spooky Action at a Distance", "Bogus Journey" and "Wolf Dix Rd.", you get J. Mascis and Doug Martsch leads shaved and bathed—they're not quite riffs, not quite solos and they can melodically support the song for minutes at a time. Though it's sonically aligned with the likes of axe-wielding party/shit-starters Diarrhea Planet or So So Glos, Iron Chic are more sincere than snotty, thus their closest analogue is probably Japandroids—while I sorta hope they tour together at some point, I also worry about some sort of class action suit from ticketbuyers who whoa'd themselves into weeklong hangovers.
