Brit-Pop Punk 4-piece Fight For Friday are new and upcoming artist with a very subtle throw-back feeling EP in Someone You Could Trust showcasing a variety of eras in the world we know of Pop Punk.
Instrumentally I’m digging the easycore feel in opener Life Hits You Hard while the vocals focus mainly on the clean pop punk aspect of things, which is like a fresh breeze of summery vibes that I can currently relate to as we proceed into Take It Or Leave It sounding like a mid-00’s punk rock with it’s simplicity that just flows so smoothly without all the complexities to try and bedazzle a song in an over-productive way, just a pure and honest track bringing back the basics. I Feel Bad, But You Should Feel Worse opens with a riff expected from hard rock genres, but make it fit into their posi-attitude based tones to encourage cross-overs from different platforms and using the riff to eventually develop into a breakdown bridge before the swift transaction into a nice key change before ending on a high. Target Practice has developed on each track to show a more modernised feel on the genre with the guitar hook, hard hitting choruses and double-timed sections making this a jam I’d add to a pop punk anthem playlist. Finishing on Headache has a different pace from previously heard songs but don’t let this fool you as the chorus is still pretty mighty and ballsy while providing piano in the bridge to bring a unique aspect further differing from the handful of songs.
