Music news & reviews, regardless of genre.
Man Overboard has released the first song, White Lies, off of their upcoming May EP, Heart Attack.
This is a surprisingly dark tune from the usually upbeat pop punk kings. While many of their songs deal with heartache or something that’s not necessarily cheery, the feel of this song itself is just haunting. The harsh guitars and pounding rhythm just beat you down. However, the gang vocals at the end are reminiscent of earlier Man Overboard records like Real Talk or their most recent self-titled release. Overall, it is a very intriguing track and I very much look forward to hearing the artistic direction on the album.
My Rating: 7 out of 10
