goldenboy are in no way strangers to the pages of this zine. This band comes from Bergen, Norway, and are playing melodic pop punk and deliver nice anthemic choruses, beautiful melodic verses, nice heartfelt lyrics and the most important of all, make your day way better and nicer when listening to their music.
They released new acoustic e.p. when they were quarantined by the covid shitty epidemic that had so much impact on our scene, banning gigs and festivals, making us hold the scene as much as we can with the music, reviews, support and friendship. These three songs are new versions of already released tunes, but what an e.p. this is. You can feel the energy through melody no matter that it is acoustic. My favorite is Old and boring, but all three songs are epic.
South American scene never ceases to amaze me with so many bands coming out every day and releasing super music to the world. End of Pipe are from Brasil and this is their new record.
There are 10 songs on this record. The music is punkrock, heavily influenced by skatepunk and melodic hardcore. The lyrics are in English and they are pretty good, bordering on the edge of personal and politics. I love the vocals, the singer reminds a lot of Pennywise singer Jim with the colour of the voice. I love more uptempo, faster songs, although this is not your typical skatepunk fast forward band, this is clever and well arranged song rhythm and great emotional melodies in guitar riffs, super vocals and anthemic choruses, topped with smart lyrics, you get a great record. Recommended songs: The Secret, 80 Shots, Memories.
