Boston based power pop group Pregame Rituals have just released their debut EP titled "All Smiles Now". The group is a one-man act under Georgio Broufas, along with some assorted friends helping flesh out musical ideas. You may remember Georgio from his time in Western Education, whom I had the pleasure for interviewing for my podcast a couple of years back and were featured many times here on the site as well. This act is markedly different than Western Ed, and has hints of some pop-punk thrown in alongside the alternative and power pop rhythms exploding on the surface. I was floored the moment I heard Pregame Rituals, and Georgio really has a strong sense of who he is as a musician and where he wants to go moving forward. This new project definitely has all the makings of an act that is going to make it a long way moving forward, and Georgio is such a genius for melding together such different styles to make the music sound melodically explosive and catchy as hell. A terrific new act that is worthy of taking a first listen to.
