The staff over at The Fader are arguing whether or not this song from Restless People sounds like Operation Ivy, but when I listen to it all I hear is The Tough Alliance. It’s always such a strange experience when a band that sounds like absolutely nothing you’ve ever heard starts generating sound-alikes for the first time. I don’t mean that as a put down – I think if you’re looking for influences, The Tough Alliance are a great place to go, and Restless People do it right. See what you think.

I agree. Tanlines is familiar with TTA so I’m sure the influence is very direct.
Not quite as good as TTA though, of course.

Hey, the original’s always better, but there’s something to be said for recognizing a good thing and running with it.
