The in Between – Things We Do

Similar artists: Taking Back Sunday, Hot Mulligan, Free Throw, Finch, Funeral For A Friend

Genre: Post-Hardcore, Pop Punk, Alternative Rock

Movie actors and rockstars will admit, if they have any decency, that they chosen profession has encouraged their infantilism. It’s enough to make the rest of us laugh and point fingers. But, it also just enough to get our jealousy flaring up. After all, these people have successfully managed to get others to pay them not to grow up. 

The rest of us have to take what we can get. We are forced to laugh today, knowing that we’ll probably cry tomorrow at the memory of what was. Get your kicks in while you can! Spend the time you have with the people you really care about! And, regardless of the outcome, follow your passion down whatever road it leads you! You may not get a record company to pay for all these luxuries, but that’s no excuse. 

The in Between’ “Things We Do” is a bittersweet pop-punk song about days that seem to last forever until they are brought to a screeching halt. It’s a song steeped in nostalgia and one that advocates chasing dreams in spite of the risks. You’ll never be the person you are today again! The in Between know a thing or two about that and their brand of pop-punk is built on that realisation. 


messier – Yee-Haw

Similar artists: Weezer, Mew, blink-182, Good Charlotte, Bowling For Soup

Genre: Skate Punk, Pop Punk, Alternative Rock

messier are a treasure to Finland and integral to the development of their culture. It’s just not clear whether their co-nationals know this yet or even understand the importance of this fun-loving pop-punk group. After all, the Finns, generally have terrible things on their minds – the Russians, the unforgivable winter, and Nightwish. 

There’s also the tricky fact that Finns appreciate a good rock n’ roll groove about as much as a caveman enjoys a chocolate souffle in an expensive restaurant. For the most part, the Nordic nation’s music has been built on the kind of drum patterns that drum machines might refuse to play out of fears of being too stiff. 

On the other hand, messier’s “Yee-Haw” is a lovely music prank that uses North American country-western drumming and Weezer-like melodies to create a soundtrack for visiting Elk Corral on the weekend. There’s little here to suggest where messier are from, or what they have had to fight against. No, this is the cheerful, singalong-ready tune that could slide into the pop-punk playlists of fans across the world. But, the folks back in saunas might never understand.
