Iowa-based pop-punkers Eugene Levy have released their newest track – alongside accompanying lyric video – ‘Use Your Body As A Weapon’.
‘Use Your Body As A Weapon’ is a biologically-charged bop that doesn’t waste any time in punching you in the face (or various other sensitive body parts) with power-chorded pop-rocky goodness. Levy alternates between chuggy fifths across verse and chorus with the lead singer’s vocals crushing the mix in that classic mid-2000s voiced tone: and it’s a solidly enjoyable number.
For fans of heavier pop-punk stylings like A Day to Remember, Eugene Levy have solidified their status as pre-eminent Iowa pop-rock. ‘Use Your Body As A Weapon’ laments the failure of not only our bodies, but love, change and the failing of others in the process. It’s not all bad vibes though, the group’s nostalgic cadence – like that of golden-era pop-punk – helps them shine through the darkness and come out the other side with a sparkling lead track.
