UK pop-punk band Safeguard released their latest EP "I'm A Stranger to Myself" via Wilhelm Records this past Friday. If you haven't given it a listen yes and are wondering if you should, here's what we think of the band's latest piece.

The EP starts out with Crux, a dramatic instrumental track that serves as the intro for the following tracks. Crux is a bold track that, unlike many intro tracks I've previously encountered, lose...

Hailing from New Jersey, Can’t Swim have a lot of big name bands to look up to, including The Misfits, My Chemical Romance and the Jonas Brothers. Okay, okay, so maybe the JoBros aren’t the highest standard of music (although Burnin’ Up is still a bop), but in their relatively short career, Can’t Swim have definitely been as successful.

Vocalist and guitarist Chris LoPorto first formed the band back in 2015 after he shared his...

L.A.-based quartet Pacific Radio have hit the music scene with their first EP, “Kitchen Table,” a short but upbeat album that introduces the area to the bands’ indie rock vibe. Although the band sites older influences, including The Rolling Stones and The Replacements, their sound is more reminiscent of the U.K. band Moose Blood but with more of a country twang in the vocals.

Unlike Moose Blood, however, Pacific Radio has a muc...

With a blisteringly hot spring, some of us are already dreaming of a cold summer. Sadly, U.K.-based post hardcore band “Cold Summer” can't control the weather, but they can keep you cool with their latest album Fight to Survive.

In their press release, Cold Summer describe Fight to Survive serves as a “call to arms for an apathetic generation.” The album is the band’s most personal album to date, focusing heavily on political t...

British pop-punk band, Boston Manor, is making waves and creating a splash here in America. As an absolute sucker for pop-punk music, throw in some mo elements and you have Boston Manor - and my heart. 

Overall, the album combines both somber and upbeat elements in an utterly angsty and romantic album. "There are some moments on the record that get much heavier and times where it just simmers down completely." guitarist, Mike C...

Brooklyn-based artist, Argonaut & Wasp, consists of Trey Schibli (vocals, guitar), Theo Klein (back-up vocals, synths), Alec Donkin (bass), Kevin Whitehead (lead guitar), and Willoughby Morse (drums). Just last week, they released a track called “Loser Like You,” an honest and funky fuck you. The song’s intro starts off like a story, backed by finger-snapping and cowbell – which seems like a strange combo, but it works.

The cho...
