Push aside the labyrinths of metaphorical themes and trendy good looks. Nothing hits oil like pop-punk anthems that reflect a genuine, good-natured spirit. DCide Records, a label that boasts alumni like Nothingface and TRUSTcompany, gives way to such with Voodoo Blue and their full-length Smile N Nod. As a result, there is a pop-punk intensity that can start dance parties and cover broader audiences - or at least until track five. Voodoo Blue is a distinct pop-punk three piece, and pop-punk is a mostly linear genre by nature. Lost in a sea of hippity power chords, hyperjacked melodies, and a mall-punk crunch, there is a skimpy argument for lasting power.
