The indie rock band Grouplove has released there second single “Traumatized” off of there upcoming album “Hot Mess” coming out on September 9th.
The song starts out with a punk feel, and has more pop vibe when the chorus hits. Christian Zucchini told the Rolling Stone, “‘Traumatized’ is about becoming a parent, explores what my parents sacrificed when I was born, and shares the fear, excitement and bliss of being alive.”
The band is also starting a world tour this upcoming fall, with shows across the United States, Canada, and Europe.
Relient k has released their first song off their new album Air For Free. “Bummin” is an upbeat energetic song with a pop/punk feel. It is a great song for spring and summertime, and for blasting on road trips.
This is definitely has more of a pop feel than Relient k of past, but is similar to the pop feel of their last album Collapsible Lung. This new album is highly anticipated because many Relient k fans did not like Collapsible Lung because of the pop feel and empty lyrics. “Bummin” doesn’t prove that won’t be the case with Air for Free, since it has a pop feel and surface level lyrics, but we’ll have to wait to see when other singles come out.
All in all, this is a good song, especially for spring/summertime on the way. Air for Free is set to be released this coming summer, on July 22nd.
