Refinery29 Hails Pizza!’s “Penchant For Deft Hooks”
According to Refinery29, Pizza! isn’t “much concerned with how smoothly they go down,” yet “Riding Through The Jungle” is one of the band’s “easiest-to-digest songs.” Calling the track “Butthole Surfers’-indebted psychedelia,” the site writes that “when Pizza! occasionally shake off their choral singing and spastic rhythmic shenanigans, they emerge with a penchant for deft hooks and a genuine pop sensibility. The resulting cacophony of ‘Riding Through The Jungle’ bursts with a weirdness that comes across like party music for dadaists stuck in a Trapper Keeper.” Listen here.
“Riding Through The Jungle” is on the new re-release of the band’s We Come From The Swamp, at radio now from Vanity Projects.
