If you feel like listening to some new punk material, then Swedish group No Fun At All‘s new album Grit might just be what you’re looking for. Don’t let their name fool you though, as hopefully you will have fun listening to this album.
Grit Spirit is a slamming tune, and really gives you a feel of what the rest of the album has to offer. That is, unless we come across any unexpected surprises throughout the rest of it. It’s fast, fun, and introduces the album incredibly well.
No Fun Intended is up next, and as said before, hopefully you’ll think it is fun, because it certainly sounds so. Fast-paced, blasting and perfect for a night out at a gig, you probably will be having fun with this one.
Going forward a little to Fortunate Smile, unlike the last tracks that would jump straight into it, this one has a proper introduction of some seriously on-point guitar chords and bass lines. It’s a little slower than the last few, giving us the opportunity to really be able to hear the vocalist (we could before, but it’s much clearer this time) and lyrics alongside with it. While fast songs can be fun and all, sometimes it can be a little difficult to make out the words. But I guess that’s the point of punk, isn’t it?
Grit Sucker (For A Plan) is an especially good track, because while it starts out fast, it soon slows down around twenty seconds in before jumping back into the chorus. It’s that kind of pacing that can make a track work, and this one doesn’t fail to deliver. Also, the melody is this one really sticks out compared to the others too, which is a plus.
Lastly, we have Simple which sticks out the most for the catchiness in the chorus and the awesome bridge before the final line. Got to love good bridges, right?
Grit was released on Friday the 13th, so it’s now available to listen to, so go ahead if you’re looking for new material to listen to.
