It’s the pathway of most pop-punk bands to one day, hopefully, after a few fun-filled records, try their hands at more serious subject matters. Usually, they lean towards goth acts like the Cure for inspiration.
That only makes sense since Robert Smith’s group like pop-punk, like Drastic Park, have always managed to find pleasing, attractive melodies throughout any of their sonic laments. The angrily sung melodies are working well here. But, beyond the bitter resentment of the delivery Drastic Park hoist a number of experimental flourishes such as the toy piano riff throughout the song and the lo-fi production of the intro.
It all ends on a peak of crashing sounds.Even punk kids have to one day grow up, but not really.
