UPSET: ‘76: EP

The first time I listened to ‘76, the power went out. I was blowing bubbles in my room, because, at heart, I’m a child. In the dark I continued to have a party by myself blowing bubbles and dancing along to every song. This album feels like the friendship you’ve always wanted to have with the cool girl across the street. Almost every track has a harmony that’s unique and pulls you in. It’s perfect pop punk with the bitterness of adulthood sprinkled on top. The chorus in “Linus” breaks in and turns the track into the ultimate summer jam: “Sunlight sneaks up slowly on us. Some nights I just want to stay up. So, I never have to wake up sore and stuffed, dirty and dried up.” –Monique Greig
