Upcoming pop punk act PSTCRDS have dropped their second offering from forthcoming EP, This Place Or Our Pace, which will be released next month. The band first caught us off guard with ‘Don’t Fake It’ earlier this year, and now with new single ‘Change & Grow’, the five-piece are gearing up to be a force to be reckoned with. With its fast, high energy antics, combined with melodic guitars and soaring vocals, this song makes for an infectious hit to your ears, and it’ll fit right in with your mid-2000’s emo/pop punk bands like Man Overboard, Forever Came Calling and Handguns.
The band’s latest track reflects high school adolescent experiences and the accompanied video sees the boys re-enact those memories for those nostalgic feels. Vocalist Steven Reid sheds some light on our younger selves:
“As older generations look back on their high school memories, we often glorify experiences growing up, even though in reality schooling and education can be the hardest years to get through. Navigating adolescence and the anxieties of growing up whilst also trying to ﬁgure out who you are and the experiences young people generally go through is hard – like trying alcohol, drugs, experimenting with new things, how you dress, how you act, how you treat people and are treated – this all factors into the overall experience and how you come out the other side.”
PSTCRD’s forthcoming EP, The Place Or Our Pace is released May 1st. We are so keen for this one!
