As u can see from this irreverent photoshoot, they are chill bros whose lives are so zany it’s basically like American Pie but in real lief
If you spend as much time looking for new easycore bands as I do, you’re no stranger to disappointment. For every sweet ez band you add to your ‘Songs to listen to when it starts to get warm out and you just wanna drive past the local community college and look at girls in yoga pants’ playlist, there’s 10 more disappointing bands who fall into one of the genre’s common pitfalls: gay friendzonecore lyrics, uptight srsness/tr00ness, or shitty production. With the genre on its last legs, I thought I’d found them all until now: meet KNOCKOUT KID!
Dat uplifting, major key intro riff. Dem bittersweet, super-earnest lyrics about striving to be a better person. Dat doodles-on-your-textbook cover art in neon colors. NOW THAT’S WHAT I CALL EASYCORE
It’s true that lyrics like “Don’t wanna text you girl, but will you answer my call?” are definitely pleaserespondcore, but the sick riffment and awesome production are enough for me to look the other way– “Hey you kids, quit asking girls to text you back! I’m gonna pretend I didn’t hear that, but don’t let me catch you doing it again, ok? Man up!!”
Don’t know anything about these guys, but it looks like they’re still around, and they’re fucking sweet so holler at them on Facebook and tell them SYWH sent you! Get them to tour with DECEIVED IN NUMBERS.
