Remember last year when we brought your attention a brand new pop punk band from the USA that gave off big riff energy in similar key to Fall Out Boy and State Champs? Well, Pittsburgh pop punkers The Middle Room are back this year with their new single, ‘Milkshake VS Old Dork’ and if you’re all about the upbeat summer jams, this one’s for you.
While the song is as catchy as Stand Atlantic, what The Middle Room really excel at is their ability to pen together some of the best tongue-in-cheek lyrics in the scene since Bowling For Soup’s Jaret Reddick. ‘Milkshake VS Old Dork’ adds even more infectious energy off the back of their debut EP, Never Satisfied (our review here) and pokes fun at feeling stuck in a rut and that constant feeling like you’re going round in circles. We’ve all been there, haven’t we?
Get around this hella fun tune now, and sit tight because The Middle Room are back!
