Schertzo EP

Dwine is quite an unpredictable band. While all staying within the boundaries of punk, they explore the nuances of straight punk, hard punk, synthesizer punk, and even pop-punk on this short EP. That means in the five songs on this EP, they have used four different genres. That's quite amazing- what's more amazing is that every song here rocks.
Their best is definitely synthesizer punk, as the standout track "Maybe Not" is a great slab of synth-propelled punk. They don't use the synthesizer as a ditty instrument; they actually use it to create backdrop, which is what sets them apart from other keyboard-punk bands. They play pop-punk well, as "Prozomniac" features a bouncy, jittery guitar line that leads straight into a sing-along chorus of epic proportions.

The band is a cohesive unit....it's hard to separate each sound into individual parts here, and ultimately pointless to do it. It would mean the same if I told you Dwine rocks without explaining the way the play as it would if I explained every little tiny nook and cranny of their sound. So I'll say it: Dwine rocks. Their sound is cool, and you'll like it.
