But there's nothing artificial about Whole Wheat Bread. Hailing from Jacksonville, Florida, the band features Trinidad-born singer-guitarist Aaron Abraham and an all-sibling rhythm section, with Nicholas and Joseph Largen on bass and drums, respectively. "Old Man Samson," the lead single from the group's debut disc, Minority Rules, possesses surprising pub-rock swagger and nails its Irish-jiggery interludes. The band's live sets incorporate everything from thrash to freestyle rap (Abraham originally contacted then-beatmaker Nicholas Largen to pursue a hip-hop project), with every genre experiment infused with vast energy and disarming humor. Whole Wheat Bread gives the increasingly bland pop-punk landscape some much-needed color, figuratively as well as literally.
