The pop-punk genre will forever be associated with the likes of Blink-182 and New Found Glory. But that's not the way to describe Bare Wires, even if pop and punk are the main ingredients in the Oakland, Calif., trio's appealing sound. The songs on the group's new album, "Seeking Love," aren't noisy or confrontational enough to be punk and not glossy or wimpy enough to be considered power-pop. The band has found that sweet spot where the genres intersect, meaning there are plenty of hooks delivered by guitars that stop just short of doubling as buzzsaws.
