You Are Going To Hate This is a hormonally charged garage-surf-punk mess of driving rhythms and reverb-drenched riffs with ’50s rockabilly references that are as fresh as the faces of San Diego’s The Frights. It’s all held together by front man Mikey Carnevale’s vocals, pivoting effortlessly from hook-up to breakup, from croon to wail. Dates with Bad Religion and Fidlar threw gasoline on a growing fan fire that now fills 500+ cap rooms in San Diego and Los Angeles and fuels sold-out tours from Seattle to Phoenix. The Frights’ Dangerbird Records debut brilliantly captures the unbridled energy of the band’s live show while letting their exuberantly dirty doo-wop shine. The dirty doo-wop sound is especially prominent in their first studio album, and is still relatively recognizable in their second. “You Are Going to Hate This” is somehow similar to Mac Demarco, The Strokes, and Boston all at once, and each song is variant, with its own individual sound. You Are Going To Hate This is a great second album and a big musical step forward for the band. This album is perfect for anyone that is a fan of any type of surf or punk music, especially those that are fans of bands like FIDLAR, Beach Fossils or the Tijuana Panthers.
