They mail hail from Toronto, but Chain Letters are far more in sync with the Pointed Sticks, not to mention a myriad of bygone Dangerhouse Records alumni, than noisenik homeboy brutes Fucked Up and Metz. Their debut wax ("Bad Reflection" b/w "Boulevard Girls") is sheer adulation of the punk-pop medium in it's most genuine and pure distillation, sans the over-emphasis of either of those key components. Sophia Dilley (formally of Young People With Faces) commandeers her quartet through a pair of mid-tempo, three (or perhaps just two) chord beauties, brandishing just enough of a visceral surge to keep this classic formula rewarding and ripe. Bravo. You can sample "Boulevard Girls" below, and if you dig what you hear, Dead Beat Records has a few copies left in stock. The Chain Letters can be emailed here. I should also tout their Soundcloud stream, which not only makes both songs available for public consumption, but provides a couple dozen more tracks from unrelated but like-minded contemporaries, making for a super sweet mix where you're sure to happen upon some very pleasant surprises.
