When Tyrannamen’s Nic Imfeld, backed by a raucous punk band, pleads for you to leave some guy on “You Should Leave Him,” the thought crosses your mind. By the time the rambunctious five-piece have kicked into full gear and Imfeld’s screaming, “We could have it so great,” you are ready to pack your bags. The Melbourne five-piece (which features members of The Stevens, Twerps, and Whipper) call to mind the ramshackle melody of the Undertones, Greg Cartwright’s Reigning Sound, and the power pop moments of fellow Aussies Royal Headache. Led by the tuneful and raw vocals of Imfeld and others, the music pops like buttons from a ripped shirt. But between the rowdiness of “I Don’t Want to Go to Jail” and “My Concrete,” a song about construction sites, there are moments of soulful tenderness such as “Diamond Ring.” They may seem and sound like ruffians, but deep down, Tyrannamen are true romantics.
