A giant middle finger to the pop punk 3 chord redo of the 70’s NYC scene. Carissa Johnson is more punk than Iggy, more pop than Green day, more harmony than Blink 182, more guts than the Clash and longer songs than the Ramones. Each song dives into a spiral of twisting counterpoint and fanatical changes that leaves the listener wondering where they will be taken next. So long to the simple and hello to the complex. You will be musically challenged.
You can catch Carissa Johnson at Pit Road Lounge in Concord NH August 21st 2015.
