By The Thermals
The Thermals have just released their latest album, 'Now We Can See,' a pure and simple jettison of pop punk; and this, their second single from this album is certainly all you've come to expect from the infectious Portland trio.
The great thing with The Thermals is that they found a winning formula and stuck with it religiously. Crunchy guitars, poppy melodies and a bit of lyrical intelligence. It's essentially the same song every time, but it works. There's a sense of humour in 'We Were Sick,' as Hutch Harris deals with some pretty heavy notions of the greed and negligence of mankind, to the tune of this innocuous little punk ditty.
