The end of may is almost in sight and I got 5 new bands for you to check out.
Slackrr is a pop punk three-piece hailing from the UK. Being formed in 2017, the band currently consists of vocalist/guitarist Scotty, bassist Cait and drummer Joe.
The band has released a total of 14 singles until now, and no eps or albums yet.
While the band has only released single, they have been active in the touring circuit and played alongside artists such as “Five Kites”, “Syteria” and “Medway”
What I like about their sound is their hard-hitting and quick sound, reminding me a little of older pop punk bands, but with a modern UK pop punk twist.
Songs I recommend are “Same Old Story”, “The Current” and “Nerve”

In terms of live performance the band has played shows with artists such as “Altitude”, “Halflives” and “Rocket Radio”
What I like about their sound is the more melodic take on pop punk, that perfectly fits with Hilde her vocal style, furthermore there are the retro pop punk vibes on the songs.
Songs I recommend are “Out of Left Field”, “April Showers Bring May Flowers” and “Monitor the World”

Weigh the Anchor
Weight the anchor is a Canadian pop punk three-piece, being started somewhere around 2017, the band currently consists of vocalist/bassist Andrew ,guitarist Brad, and drummer Brendan.
What I like about their sound are the heavier influences, making their from of pop punk more akin to easycore in a modern package.

A Few Too Many
A Few Too Many is a pop punk/skate-punk five-piece from the UK, emerging somewhere in 2009, the band currently consist of vocalist Mike Achilles, guitarist/vocalist Danny Freeman, guitarist Jez Giles, bassist Luke D’Alton and drummer Mitch Holleyman.

What I like about their sound are the 90s influences, the bands sound wouldn’t be out of place on a punk’o’rama CD or being played on gillman’s stage.
Songs I recommend are “Escape to L.A”, “Stuck on Repeat” and “First Last Kiss”
