It makes me sad that LIT doesn’t get more love aside from hearing “My Own Worst Enemy” on the ‘hard rock’ radio station every now and then when I walk past a construction site. I’ll write an in-depth post about them one of these days, but they are a tragically underrated power-pop band who should be way more influential than they are. Which is why I am so stoked that there is a band called LATIN FOR TRUTH that sounds like LIT if they decided to capitalize on the tr00 pop-punk scene:
I thought their old easycore stuff was p sweet, so not sure why it took me so long to check out this out, but I’m definitely feeling it. Notes:
- SINGER SOUNDS EXACTLY LIKE AJ FROM LIT. Music isn’t too far off either!
- Not sheriff intro is sincere, but I will go ahead and expose myself to potential ridicule by assuming that is. Feel like ‘he rly understands how my mind works’ because I sometimes find myself slipping into negativity but then I’m liek ‘stay positive bro, rmbr that YOUTH OF TODAY song u liked in 9th grade and u loved singing along to the part that went ‘PHYSICALLY STRONG, MORALLY STRAIGHT POSITIVE YOUTH WE’RE THE YOUTH OF TODAY??? Wat would Civ say??’ Srs doe, I can definitely get behind these lyrics.
- The ‘band standing in front of flashing strobe light’ thing = seizure/10. I remember when BOTCH did this in the 90s and John from UNDERTOW/HIMSA/NINEIRONSPITFIRE was their ‘light guy,’ sort like how ANTZ from Brokencyde is credited with ‘lights/fog machine’
- Is it a rule that bands with ‘husky’ singers are required to have zany, bittersweet lyrics full of biting sarcasm (aka the “BOWLING FOR SOUP rule”)? Does his tie fall under this rule as well, or is that just what chubbybros do when they’re going to get their picture taken and ‘want to look nice’ (via Jonah Hill)?
