Seattle power poppers The Pranks released their first album, Modern Communication, at the end of last year and extablished themselves as a power pop band to be reckoned with. Produced by lead singer Erik Foster's older brother --Boss Martians' front man Evan Foster--The Pranks play a pop-punk style of power pop, and deliver a modern sound that echoes Weezer and the Posies at times. Yet, it's clear that the Pranks understand the power pop of the seventies just as well with flourishes that recall Cheap Trick such as on the song here, "Modern Communication".
