“Choke ’em Up” by the Earthquake Lights has a power retro-rock vibe that calls back to the 1970s Detroit scene as well as The White Stripes. Deliberate, intense guitar lines represent the backdrop upon which assertive vocals can build off of. The sizzling guitar work and extended instrumental section which presents themselves at the two-minute mark gradually spin the effort into its final minute. This is traditional hard rock done right. Dirty, dingy, and with each beat tattooing itself deep into fans’ minds, this is the Earthquake Lights’ latest effort.
