It feels like it was only yesterday that All Time Low released ‘Once in a Lifetime’, but now the pop punk favourites are back with yet another banger. Having teamed up with Blackbear and Demi Lovato, these guys are no strangers to collaborations and that’s exactly what their newest release is. Post Modern Anxiety, or ‘PMA’ is a high-spirited tune that sees vocalist Alex Gaskarth alongside Heather Baron-Gracie, vocalist for UK indie rockers Pale Waves.
Pale Waves adds a refreshing alternative/pop element to the track though, given this band have been making some huge waves with their latest release, Who Am I? kinda reminding us of 2000s contemporary pop/rock solo artists Michelle Branch, Alanis Morisette and Avril Lavigne. Honestly, if you haven’t got around these guys, you definitely need to. Their album has been on repeat since its debut, and I cannot get enough.
Lyrically inspired by those dark, self-sabotaging thoughts inside our head, ‘PMA’ acts as that self-reassurance you’ve been searching for and is just as cathartic and catchy as All Time Low’s previous single. The band are currently preparing for their big festival headliner on Sad Summer Fest this September in the US, and recently premiered this song live for the first time in Nashville this week and it’s safe to say this song has become my new favourite ATL jam.
