New Music Friday: Pom Pom Squad and Liz Phair

I was listening to new music by Pom Pom Squad and Liz Phair and it was making me think about how iterative music is. You have Pom Pom Squad, which is an indie punk/grunge rock band founded and fronted by 23 year old Mia Berrin. Their sound on their first album, Death of a Cheerleader, definitely evokes a lot of 90s era female rock for me. Then you have Liz Phair who actually began her music career during that period of the 90s who just put out a new album as well. You have the song “Spanish Doors” off of the new album Soberish which does have more of that similar sound, but you also have the song “In There” that is more of an evolved sound that doesn’t feel like it came from the 90s. I’m just fascinated by the idea that young kids listen to older music and are influenced by that sound while some of those same older acts are taking cues from newer music being created by younger artists and incorporating it into their sound. Music is fun y’all.
