I can't decide from which decade Resistant Me pulls the most. There is a clear hooky '80s power-pop influence to the songwriting-but they also have a wealth of meaty '90s alt-rock guitar riffs texturing the songs. They also bring a certain moodiness to the music that is reminiscent of the darker indie-rock bands-like Muse, for instance. Lead singer Cynthia Acevedo bounces between sweet soulful vocals and powerhouse rock howls, with as much flamboyant swagger as any of the '70s glam rock stars. It's serious music with a tongue-in-cheek sense of humor about it. The self-referential "Rockstar" is the prime example.
