EP REVIEW: Nothing About Me - Stickup Kid
Track One: Breathing
This is kind of a typical opening for an EP, but nonetheless, I’m a fan. The band breaks into a strong set of vocals that draw a ton of influence from Lifetime and Kid Dynamite. Although this song is only 1:30, they manage to cram in another clean vocal part that reminds me of Saves The Day. This track was a great way to open up the EP.
Track Two: Lighthouse
If you like Title Fight and/or Basement, you will love this song. Stickup Kid presents a stronger pop-punk side rather than melodic hardcore, like “Breathing”.
Track Three: Dreaming Of Kenny Rogers
This song has been out as a demo for a while, so previous fans of this song will be stoked on the rerecording. This song showcases the how lyrically and musically talented the band is. Not in the fact that there’s crazy sick riffs, but in the fact that the song flows so beautifully. Although this is the second shortest song on the EP, I think it’s one of the best.
Track Four: You Are Captain Hook
As soon as the lyrics start, I’m reminded of old Saves The Day. Although I’m not sure why since it doesn’t sound like Chris Conley, but something really reminds me of Saves The Day in this song. I have a feeling that this song will be one of the most fun songs to see live. Stage dives and pile-ons, here we come!
Track Five: The Weather Outside Is Weather
Stickup Kid saved the best for last, in my opinion. The song is a full fledged pop-punk/punk rock anthem. It’s fast, fun, and everything you could want in a pop-punk song. This track definitely showcases the bands west coast hardcore influences in parts, and I feel like this will be one of the biggest songs of the summer in the pop punk community.
All in all, Stickup Kid are releasing a pretty awesome EP. Pick up Nothing About Me on June 5th via Adeline Records. 4/5.
Don’t forget, Living With Lions’ new album, HOLY SHIT, comes out on May 17th! Pre-order the album on Adeline Records’ website, and check out the track listing.
