The influence the 2000s is having on the 2020’s is monumental. A great deal of the music is nostalgia-based, but a lot is taking the best of the decade and repurposing it into something new. That’s clearly the approach taken by Cayton band Nalgo Bay on their newest single, Riot Town.

The song features the same groovy and ear twitching guitar riffs that permeated 2000s rock, along with the punk rock inspired vocals, but used less chaotically and more strategically. The song perfectly understands the best moments of satisfaction in its instrumental, bringing the energy levels down to a two until suddenly crashing them back up to 11. It’s incredibly effective, and a song that could soundtrack a thriving mosh pit.
