Now, if you aren’t a Neck Deep fan, this title may throw you for a bit of a loop. If however, you have indeed heard of the band, this title sounds incredibly familiar, and after listening to the bands newest album “The Peace and The Panic”, this statement couldn’t hold more true.
Let’s face it, these guys are bringing back punk. There isn’t a band around right now that sounds exactly like them, and that is a great thing to be able to say. With bands around in this scene right now, you can almost always say, ‘Hey, they remind me of so and so’ which isn’t a bad thing, but it’s very rare to find a band such as Neck Deep, who in my opinion have their very own sound.
Now, onto their album.
Before this album I will admit, I wasn’t a fan of the band. Upon hearing these new songs though I gained a greater appreciation for their older music. This album opened me up to the band and I am not disappointed in the slightest. With songs such as ‘Happy Judgement Day’ and ‘Where Do We Go When We Go’ that have a very fast sound and make you want to scream the lyrics and jump around. You also are blessed with total bops like ‘In Bloom’ and ‘Heavy Lies’ that are such great and amazing relationship ballads. The band also gives us songs that hit us all right in the feels with songs like ‘Wish You Were Here’ and ’19 Seventy Sumthin” which both encompass loss that was experienced.
Looking to the subject matter of the songs, we can see that this band really knows how to apply to their fans, from worldly matters, to relationships, to loss, there is more than likely a song that one can relate to and that is always a nice feeling for a fan.
Overall, this is definitely a band that nobody should sleep on. These guys are already huge, and they won’t be stopping here, I can tell they have much, much, more in store. Keep your eyes on them, and your ears open to them, because I promise you, you won’t be disappointed if you do.
