SkatingPollyFlyerFeatured

Artist: Skating Polly

Mackenzie Nicole’s Complications

ComplicationsFeatured

Artist: Mackenzie Nicole

Song Title: “Complications”

Single Sentence Singles Review: A toe-tapping catchy track with a self-deprecating edge, Nicole sings herself into a relatable spotlight rather than placing herself up on a pop pedestal like so many other artists working within the genre today.

Beyond The Track: While “Complications” is a standalone single, Nicole does have a forthcoming album due to drop this summer. To learn more about the pop songstress, check out the TrunkSpace interview with her from 2018 here.

Dizzy’s Bleachers

DizzyFeatured

Artist: Dizzy

Song Title: “Bleachers”

Single Sentence Singles Review: Layered and multidimensional, there’s a lot to love about “Bleachers,” though the most memorable aspect of the song lies in Katie Munshaw’s playful and hypnotic vocals, which, if given the chance to continue to shine this brightly, will be destined for greatness.

Beyond The Track: “Bleachers” is the latest single off of the Canadian quartet’s debut album Baby Teeth, released in August from Royal Mountain Records/Communion Music.

MineralFeatured

Artist: Mineral

Song Title: “Aurora”

Single Sentence Singles Review: It’s been 20 years since Mineral released new material, and while expectations can build up over the course of two decades, the Austin quartet – which disbanded in 1997 – has delivered on them all with this moving single that is both nostalgic and contemporary in its crafting and production.

Down By Law’s Undone

DownByLaw_SitandSpin_singles_edition

Song Title: “Undone”

From The Album: All In (art pictured at left)

Single Sentence Singles Review: If this song were a bagel, it would be an everything bagel, because it has, well, everything; a beat that gets you pumped, melodic vocals that will have you singing along, and a horn melody that accents this already-tantalizing tune.

Beyond The Track: Down By Law, which has been a pillar in the pop-punk community for nearly three decades, is back with All In, their first album in five years. “Undone” is pure energy – lightning – that has busted out of the bottle and just kept on jamming to infinity and beyond. All In is due to drop August 3rd from Cleopatra Records. Preorder is available here. Listen to the track here

Song Title: “Had it Coming”

From The Album: In Spite Of Me (art pictured left)

Single Sentence Singles Review: If Warped Tour wasn’t taking its final bow this summer, “Had it Coming” is the audible proof that Canada’s Like Pacific would be headlining the annual punk festival sooner rather than later.
