There’s still another week left of the month, but I figured I’d round up some of the standout songs that have been released recently!
Figure It Out – The Summer Set
A classic-sounding TSS song, I can relate to the lyrics about getting back to the basics and trying to figure out what’s most important, not to mention that fantastic first line: “I’m a bit too pop for the punk kids, but I’m too punk for the pop kids”. Mostly, I’m just happy they didn’t break up and are releasing an album/touring this spring.
They also released another song, “Missin’ You”, a couple of weeks ago which is worth a listen:
Good Enough – The Ready Set
Slower than what I expected when I found out TRS was also releasing an album, but it’s still catchy and fun, just like most of their songs.
Colourblind – Hands Like Houses
This video came out right before I started working on a review of their third album for idobi, so I’ve been listening/watching it quite a bit. The singer looks like David Beckham, but that’s not the (only) reason I like these guys.
Opinion Overload – Simple Plan
I haven’t really listened to Simple Plan in a while, but I really like what I’ve heard from their new album so far. Maybe it’s time for me to get back into them, because this is pure pop-punk gold from one of the scene’s “veterans” (they’ve been around for a while).
