Release Radar #37

It’s Friday and where back to your regularly scheduled programming, let’s get into this week’s release radar.

Too Damn Long- Without Andrew

Too Damn Long- Without Andrew

Opening with fast strumming guitar. The first verse features pounding drums and energetic vocals. Keeping the same instrumentation, the chorus features a second vocalist. The second verse follows the pattern of the first and gets to the chorus just as quickly. Taking It into a different direction the bridge adds some brass instruments. The song ends with one last chorus.

Lyrically the song is about a long distance relation ship and the distance being to damn long.

What I like about this song where the quick-passed guitars and the overall instrumentation. It reminded me of a green day song in a way.

Kicking in with the drums, the song slowly adds dreamy guitar to the mix. The first verse introduces soft vocals to the mix, the chorus flows with the verse. Introducing an instrumental part to the song before jumping into the second verse. The song ends with one last chorus. 

Lyrically the song is partly a love song and partly deals with the protagonist their own mind and insecurities.

What I like about this song is the slow and mellow nature, it sounds fitting for the longer winter nights. 

Out On My Feet – The Wonder Years

Out On My Feet – The Wonder Years

Opening with noisy guitars, before getting into fast guitars and powerful vocals on the first verse. The chorus adds a second vocalist before and has a more instrumental outro. The second verse mirrors the first but gets into the chorus quicker. Things are switched up on the bridge where the song get into some sort of breakdown. The band takes it slow on the second part of the bridge and adds only vocals and a muted guitar. The song ends with one last chorus. 

Lyrically the song talks about the slur of a dead-end job. And simple being sick of being broke or having the same shit every day.

What I like about this song are the heavy guitars and poppy choruses.

Starting off with a lone guitar, the first verse of the song adds slow pounding drums and slight distorted guitars. The first chorus take sit a little faster. The second verse mirrors the first and is introduced just like the opening of the song. The chorus gives the same energy as the first. The bridge changes up the instrumentation, getting it faster before  making it heavier. The song plays with slower parts and gets back into the chorus. The ends with a slow fading out verse.

Lyrically the song basically tells about the greatness of the protagonist.

What I like about this song is the pop punk energy, while I know the original song from my high school days I would never have thought that it would fit so well as a pop punk song. 

Lie to me- The Dangerous Summer

Lie to me- The Dangerous Summer

Opening with a piano, the first verse adds vocals and a sightly louder piano before introducing drums to the instrumentation. The chorus switches things up by adding a guitar and a violin. On the bridge the band adds some effects before getting in one last chorus and ending with a slow outro.

Lyrically the song talks about the work that goes in to a relation ship, asking the other side to lie to the protagonist to make it easier. What I like about this song is the use of piano, the song still feels like an acoustic pop punk song but with a twist by using a different instrumentation.
