The 3148s (thirty-one, forty-eights) is an indie rock band that consists of Ian Coote (songwriter/vocals/guitars/key/mandocello/etc.), Jason Seifert (bass), Greg Jones (songwriter/guitar/vocals) and Tom Jones (drummer). They make the sort of music that feels like a mixture of punk, grunge, garage and blues. The sounds are exciting, with the male lead vocalist shouting out the lyrics with absolute gusto and the revved music in the background.
For the most part, the band is made up of a group of friends who work as trial lawyers as a day job. The band name comes from a section of the Michigan auto insurance law, Section 3148, that happens to describe the band very well, as being “so excessive as to have no reasonable foundation.” And I have to tell you that The 3148s definitely have an “excessive” sound that spills out in every corner to give you something you’ll be remembering for a long time.
Their latest single is “Fire At The Meeting House” and right out of the gates, you get the band’s over-the-top sound. A wall of wailing guitars howls deep into the night as sirens swoop in. Once the male lead’s vocals come in, you’re already hit with a blast of music and you’ll definitely never be the same again.
From beginning to end, this had some high-tail energy and the enthusiasm of the band was great! I couldn’t get enough of their great energy and can’t wait to see what more good things they have in store for listeners next!
