Whey Should You Care? This trio makes some rocking music. Their lead single “Feels Like Work” features alternative powerpop rock riffs without the bubble gum. The Slang brings back the best of 90’s rock. Their music reminds me of Goo Goo Dolls meets Third Eye Blind. It is a refreshing sound that stands out and captures your attention. The sweet vocals of Bobo are engaging. Their musical talents have earned them invitations to several premier music conferences including MPMF, NXNE, and CMJ. Their music has also been used in various mainstream outlets including HBO, USA network, and Troma Films.
