Columbus’ The Kyle Sowashes play a brand of tight and catchy Guitar Pop that sounds all too familiar, but is easily likeable, nonetheless. The band — drummer Dan Bandman (that’s really his last name), guitarist Justin Hemminger, bassist Lonn Schubert and the band’s namesake/lyricist/lead singer/guitarist Kyle Sowash — has a laid-back style that’s cool but in no way pretentious. The members are Indie vets recruited from other bands by Sowash and they all have some chops. On the band’s newest release, the superb Nobody, Bandman and Schubert lock in to create a steady backbeat, while Sowash’s chugging rhythm guitar interplays well with Hemminger’s tasteful, show-stealing lead guitar.
