With explosive, soulful guitar solos, and that punk-signature humor laced in the lyrics – this is bound to be your new Noel jam. It becomes evident in every corner of this offering that PMKS is not some new ‘in the moment’ flavor of the week, but a seasoned & battle-hardened band offering licks & lyrics alike that contend with the rock gods of generations past.
The Blankz are beginning to become something well worth tuning in for as a go-to soundtrack and indeed an unmissable live band – hopefully next summer sees Festival season scoop them up.
Trey explores the issues that have haunted him, the various forks in the road & the effects they’ve had on his life. Musically he offers punk-rock energy, colour & escapism.
Sempre Caoz make music that screams out for you with its gritty, passionate, nostalgic & anthemic embrace. Still Alive is a huge song, one that incorporates the perfect balance between influences from the various sub-genres of rock.
The best thing about the world’s best bands is that they belong to a genre that never really dies. Tougher Than You Thought have released a solid, pounding, polished EP that points to the future of music worth actually listening to.
Bringing through the classic energy & angst of punk rock, alongside of something a little more creative & structurally organic, Built is a huge single – impossible to ignore from the offset, and one that connects a little more intensely with each revisit.
The band offer a thick, punk-pop level of boldness and energy, but they contrast this with delicate, difficult subject matters – a fine balance that you don’t find all too often in modern music.
“It would be a good thing if just one bloke questioned why he was always being such a dick to his girlfriend and made an effort to change his behavior.”
The Anti-Trump Mix Tape is on sale for a whopping £1,000 or more (that’s $1,320 for my American audience) with each track costing at least £100. That’s PMKS, and this is Anti-Trump Mix Tape.
The details work well, the carefree storytelling style seems to make everything seem OK – as is the role of punk rock, to normalize volume & chaos or at least to draw attention to it & create a shared understanding.
As a grown man who still listens to Bowling for Soup & (Old) Fall Out Boy every single day, I give you my word that you OWE IT TO YOURSELF to hear everything this band has to offer.
A two-track bonanza, set to immediately take many listeners back to their teenage years – when punk-pop was the soundtrack to our carefree lives.
