Up and coming artist It Came to This claims their music is “exactly the kind of Pop-Punk the world needs at a time like this”, we wholeheartedly agree.
As soon as you hit play on their tracks you’re met with a flood of unashamedly human angst. There’s no pretence or façade, just honest, connectable sentiment paired with upbeat rhythms to sweeten the disillusionment.
Shingles is just one of the endearingly catchy singles to be released by the bedroom Pop Punk. It may be a Lo-Fi production, but with the sharpness of the melodic hooks and the tight synergy between the raucously disquiet instrumentals and the Emo Rock-inspired vocals stand as a testament to It Came to This’ talent.
I’m sure I won’t be the only one hoping for more cathartically quaint releases in the future from It Came to This.
