  • Aug : 12 : 2016 - Spotlight: COLD SUMMER Release ‘Fight To Survive’ EP (Listen & Watch) [Post-Hardcore, Punk Rock]

I had initially caught the sound of Back Pocket Memory from their single ‘All We Have’ off of their 2011 release Beneath the Trees and was greatly anticipating new music from this dynamic pop-rock band out of Burbank, CA.

 

The new self-titled EP (released 30 October 2012) boasts 5 tracks of pure alt-pop-rock in the vein of  Jimmy Eat World, Plain White T’s, and Panic! At the Disco. Although the band would fit nicely in the amongst the heavy-hitters of a major label, Back Pocket Memory remain unsigned for their second EP and had funded the project via Kickstarter. Recently home from a tour with Culprit, and with a following of almost 6,000 Facebook likes, these guys are poised for success.

 

The EP plays with a high level of energy and performance from these guys and flows nicely. The Prisoner opens the album with intricate layers of guitar work over Chris Pennington’s solid vocals that are comparable, yet exceed that of Panic! At the Disco.

 

The album continues to  flow with rich melodies and vocal falsettos that burst into a roller coaster of tempos and impeccable drum work that keep the energy flowing.

 

There’s little to complain about the EP other than it ends too quickly. The production and quality is above average and the band execute the songs with matured precision. I’ll be eager to hear what’s next from the band, these guys are one to keep on the radar.
