We're The Seventy Fours and this is our new EP 'This is Forever'. It is produced and engineered by Will Yip, also associated with Title Fight and new Circa Survive. Listen and give some feedback, please! Thank you!
I don't really have too much knowledge of pop-punk (pretty much just listen to The Wonder Years, Transit, blink and Four Year Strong) but I definitely hear a Transit influence, and it's not terribly generic like a lot of pop-punk can be. Pretty enjoyable stuff
I see a real mid 2000's Pop Punk influence here which, believe me, is in no way a bad thing. In fact it's real refreshing to see a new Pop Punk group not following the whole Pop Punk/ Hardcore path everyone seems to take these days, complete with screaming breakdowns in the middle of an unfittingly upbeat song, so for that I salute you guys. As for the songs themselves, I was mostly really impressed. My favorite was easily "Love So Wrong" which also happens to be your most 'Pop Punk' song of the batch. The runner up has to be "Writing All Your Stories" which despite some really out of place sounding synth and a bit of a drawn out mid-section fully succeeds in being a softer Pop Punk/Emo song that really picks up at the end. Overall, I was pleasantly surprised - you've got something seriously awesome going on here.
