The Pack A.D. - Crazy

As I mentioned in my review of "Gold And Warm" by Bad Veins, duos can be amazing.  This song by The Pack A.D. proves my point.  The Pack A.D. is a Canadian female duo that plays solid rock and roll music.  Their song "Crazy" borrows heavily from The White Stripes' style of music.  It's heavy, catchy, and raw.

Upon first listen, the opening riff to "Crazy" sounds almost exactly like "The Hardest Button To Button" by The White Stripes.  This may scare away loyal White Stripes fans.  The riff changes very quickly, but being so similar to an already famous song could make some listens scream "unoriginality".  If you aren't overly critical of this coincidence, then the song is great.  I love the heavy bass beat supplied by, drummer, Maya Miller.  If you add in the crunchy guitar of, vocalist, Becky Black, you have a winning combination.

"Crazy" can be found on the band's album, We Kill Computers.  You should check them out if you like The White Stripes, Billy Boy On Poison, The Black Keys, or Band Of Skulls.  The Pack A.D. have that garage, and sometimes bluesy, rock sound.  Give it a listen if you like that style of music.
