No Alarms’ “Amateur Telephony” is a track that calls back to the vocals of Robert Smith (The Cure), the emotive guitar work of The Police, and the driving bass and progression of Fugazi or Mission to Burma. The blending together of new wave and 1st-wave emo make this track pop, as does the angularity of the instrumentation here. No Alarms put a strong foot forward and make a track in Amateur Telephony that could easily slot into college radio or alternative rock rotation. The hookiness of the track ensures that listeners will be singing along with it long after the cut ceases to play.
