On each of their past two albums, the San Francisco new wave noise punks POW! moved further from the scratchy lo-fi attack of the debut Hi-Tech Boom and closer to a slicker, poppier version of that sound. Their fourth album, 2019's Shift, not only halts the progression but moves to an even more avant-garde, borderline bonkers approach. The duo of Byron Blum (guitar/vocals) and Melissa Blue (synth/vocals) are joined by Froth drummer Cameron Allen and producer Thomas Dolas and they concoct a sound that is more angular, more nervous, and twice as twitchy as anything they've recorded yet.
