Homecoming has released their punchiest Indie Pop Punk single to date with the release of “Prime”

Pop Punk, Post Hardcore and Indie Rock all entwine in the explosively adrenalizing recently released single “Prime” from breaking San Antonio-based artist Homecoming.

They’ve gone right back to the roots of Emo and Pop-Punk with the bouncing anthemic choruses which stand as a testament to the production standard of Prime. Yet Homecoming played a bit of Machiavellian trick as they allowed the harmonically magnetic vocals to be interrupted by the raw screamo lyrics. The seismic shift in energy definitely wasn’t expected. Yet, it made the sticky-sweet choruses which followed even more absorbing.

No review of Prime would be complete without mentioning the guitar which borrows Indie Rock nuances to ensure that the track isn’t just a heavy-hitter. There’s also a smorgasbord of deftly intricate distinction within their playing style to gorge upon.

Common Choir – Dive Bar Knight Life Pt 2: Colossally Caustic Metalcore

If you’re always on the lookout for the freshest Metalcore talent, you won’t have to look much further than Common Choir.

The standout single “Dive Bar Knight Life Pt 2” from their self-released EP is a cathartically volatile hit which is driven by pure unfaltering tensile momentum and soul slicing raw emotion.

You only need to listen to the tight synergy in to affirm that Common Choir is a powerhouse. From Dive Bar Knight Life Pt 2 you can expect consuming choruses and instrumental breakdowns which will leave any discerning metal fan with goosebumps. There’s no chance of missing the virtuosity of the bassist. The thunderous growls are enough to make you suspicious that he’s of relation to Thor.

And no review of Common Choir would be complete without mentioning the captivatingly dynamic vocals which consistently evolve in perfect synergy with the instrumentals. From throat-rippingly raw screams, to soaring vocal melodies, this monster of a track proves that the Minnesota band can offer it all.

You can check out the official video to Dive Bar Knight Life Pt 2 which was released on January 5th via YouTube.

EVRI – CONGRATULATIONS: Throat-Punchingly-Riotous Garage Rock    

If you were born in the 90s, chances are, you’ll find plenty of nostalgia in the scorching Pop Punk/Post Rock guitar riffs which introduce up and coming artist EVRI’s latest single “CONGRATULATIONS”.

The viscerally charged single may boast a Lo-Fi production. But the gritty Garage Rock feel to the track amplified the angsty cutting catharsis which will definitely be shared as the explosive track progresses.

For me, the trademark for any good track is found in the level of emotion projected into it. And there’s a smorgasbord of undiluted, throat punching riotous energy found in CONGRATULATIONS. It may not be neatly packaged and sugar-coated, but in my not so humble opinion, the best tracks never are.

You can check out EVRI’s single CONGRATULATIONS which was released on December 31st 2019 for yourselves via YouTube.
