Drastic Park are a pop punk-rock trio based in Melbourne who are wildly known for producing punchy bangers that remind us of Blink-182’s Take Off Your Pants & Jacket days. So let me tell you, my eyes opened wide when I heard the boys’ latest single ‘Lost’. Have they officially lost it?
Not really no, but I think the band are finally beginning to come into their own identity on this new soaring anthem. You can definitely hear remnants of the band’s current style sprinkled throughout though. But on a bigger scale, ‘Lost’ is a thundering, emo-rock track that give us so many new emotions for this band. In fact, it definitely feels like Drastic Park have gone a little more Simple Plan here, and it’s a huge vibe!
This latest onset follows previous singles, ‘Meltdown’ and ‘Snakes & Ladders’ which both saw John Stokes, Joe Larwood and Chris Tannahill evolve their angsty punk attitude throughout 2021 and grow into the well-rounded collective that we’re becoming big fans of here at WoS HQ.
In the meantime, light up some candles or mobile phone lights and catch some feels while listening to ‘Lost’ right now!
