18PM – Poolside: Post-Punk-Infused Indie Pop

Alt Indie artist 18PM has recently made their debut with their album 18pm! and they didn’t fail to set themselves apart with their unique mix of Post Punk, Shoegaze and Indie Pop.

The album was released on October 10th, and while each of the singles welcomes you into a new era of music, the best introduction to 18PM’s sound has to be “Poolside”.

While the sound could have been a little more polished and melodious, Poolside is still a compelling high-energy single, it just so happens that the high energy is slightly caustic. But fans of bands such as The Wedding Present, The Jesus and Mary Chain and Joy Division certainly shouldn’t have an issue with the slightly ominous air which lingers around the cuttingly angular guitars.

The contrast between the slightly cold instrumental arrangement and the sweetly magnetic Indie Pop vocals made sure that 18PM had our attention from the very first verse.

You can check out 18PM’s track Poolside along with the rest of their debut album for yourselves by heading over to Spotify now.
