Kid Savant: Drop It on the Stereo

Promising EP from a band that's at its best when it doesn't try too hard.

Kid Savant dishes out catchy-as-hell pop that lacks out-and-out stupidity on its debut EP. That tactic is especially evident on the opening "Na Na Never Ends" and the Hall and Oates-influenced "4 Years" where the quartet saves its ambition for the songwriting rather than for the sake of sounding achingly contemporary. The latter concern creeps into "What It’s Worth", a catchy-enough piece that loses spirit in a race to mash together various subgenres. The retro "Walt" doesn’t work all that well either and might have easily been left on the cutting room floor but the three-minute "Drop It on the Stereo" offers up pop perfection, making the EP worth noticing.
