Review by Dillon Crader
Post Season kicks off their split EP with Such A Mess with a very upbeat and excellent pop-punk sound that really puts their foot down in the pop-punk scene. Both of their songs, “Backroads” and “Never Tell Me The Odds” are substantial pop-punk tracks, however the only gripe I have is that I feel I have heard these songs before. This isn’t a bad thing though; overall, this split is very well put together and Post Season sounds fantastic with their two tracks, giving listeners a chance to really understand who they are and what they’re all about.
Such A Mess absolutely kills it on their side of the split. It seems that Such A Mess approach the pop-punk genre in a different aspect, giving it an incredibly unique sound. The song, “Tether” has a strong guitar riff and melody that just adds more flavor to the song and makes me want to hear more from the band. Not only is “Tether” a great song, but “Keep To Myself (In F Major Sharp)” has a darker sound that really adds a personal touch, rather than a continuously upbeat and fast paced feeling.
Overall, both halves of the split are strong, giving listeners a good chance to get their hands on some new music and understand both Post Season and Such A Mess. The EP leaves me excited to hear more releases coming from both bands to see the direction that they are heading in and what they will do next.
Listen to "Keep To Myself (In F Major Sharp)"
