Time to Kill is the latest single released by the Indie Pop Punk one-woman powerhouse No Reception. The lyrics to Time to Kill hit me like an absolute brick, I can’t say any I’ve found any lyricism in a Pop Punk hit quite so resonant in a long time. It’s clear that vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Claire Julian is speaking from a plaintive experience. There’s a slight hint of fragility contained within the lyricism, yet, within the vocals you’re treated to a serving of angsty anthemic attitude and frankly it’s glorious. No one has ever wanted to be someone’s pastime, but no one has ever expressed the fact quite so poignantly as No Reception.
You can check out No Reception’s latest single Time to Kill for yourselves by heading over to Spotify now. Make sure to give her a follow, her upcoming EP ‘See Through’ is due for a much-awaited release. After listening to Time to Kill, I can guarantee as you’ll be as impatient as me for the drop.
