It sounds like The Wonder Years are taking it back to their early days if their latest single is anything to go by.
The lyrics are a little on the moody and emo side, but oh my god ‘Low Tide‘ hits the spot real good if you’ve been feeling a little low on that seratonin this week. While the guitars just make you want to jump into the next pop punk mosh like it’s 2010 again, lead vocalist Dan ‘Soupy’ Campbell’s words stand out just as well as the band’s 2011 LP, Suburbia I’ve Given You All And Now I’m Nothing. I particularly enjoy how beautiful and soothing the following words feel to my soul: “It’s low tide at serotonin bay, and for the first time, I’m not sure that everything’ll be ok.”
If this is anything to go off alongside already released singles ‘Summer Clothes‘ and ‘Wyatt’s Song‘, on September 23 The Wonder Years will drop their forthcoming new album, The Hum Goes On Forever through Hopeless Records. It is shaping up to be the pop punk album of the year.
