New England band Another One Down! rock our socks off with ‘Stuck In The Wake’ (Official Lyric Video)

Another One Down! rock in with the fantastic ‘Stuck In The Wake‘ (Official Lyric Video) and this is an impressive song and the video is playfully made with style.

Since their inception in 2014, Rhode Island based pop-punk band Another One Down! has continually proven themselves to be a driving force within the New England scene. Having two EPs under their belt, the band has played alongside notable acts such as Four Year Strong, Metro Station, Belmont, and opened the final Vans Warped Tour. With their debut full length set to be released later this year, AOD! plans to expand their pop-punk roots by leaning more into their alternative and emo influences.

This is a powerfully sung punk rock track that is perfect for those weekend days with friends. It fires you up and I love how in mesh the band are. This puts me in a good but reflective and mood and the whole band sync perfectly. New England band Another One Down! fly in on ‘Stuck In The Wake‘ and this is all about being stuck and looking out for others that are too. This is a rad song that shows how epic this band is.

Radio Decay – Gone Wrong: The Antagonistically Sweet Bite of Punk Pop Rock

Breathe You In by Radio Decay

Over recent months, I’ve found that not a lot of contemporary Indie Pop Rock can bowl me over but throw a bit of Punk antagonism into the soundscape and that changes everything. Which is exactly what Radio Decay did with their single Gone Wrong from their 2018 album.

The Alabama based artists fronted by the sensationally unapologetic female vocalist have pretty much just created the soundscapes that Pale Waves wish they had with their latest single. The attitude-driven sound has been given an iridescent Pop polish, yet vocals amidst the crashing instrumentals still carry that raw punch that you’d expect from any self-respecting act fusing elements of Punk into their arrangements. The lyricism is just the icing on the cake to any nihilist looking for some catharsis through drinking in cynically rapturous choruses.

You can check out Radio Decay’s single Gone Wrong from their latest album Breath You by heading over to BandCamp now. The full album will be released on August 8th, 2018.
