Come Clean, the pop punk trio from Greensboro, NC., is set to drop their new EP, From Down the Street, via Standby Records on December 7, 2018. The four-track EP immediately kicks into high gear with “High Guy,” an uptempo fury of punk rock bliss. This is a song that belongs accompanied by a circle pit and slam dance moves.
Followed by “Clarity” with squealing guitars, a fury of bass drum and lyrics “I never thought it’d bury me, just like this broken melody.” With precise instrumentals, approachable lyrics and a fresh vocal tone this track keeps the collection fast-paced and peppy.
Slowing things down only ever so slightly is “Complicated,” a song chock full of chug that lends an emo vibe with wonderfully gritty vocals. “When I’m Falling” is loaded with power chords and a bit of Tom Delonge-feel throughout the vocal accents in the chorus that dish out classic pop punk nostalgia to a killer crowd participation track.
When performing songs off From Down the Street live, I would fully expect to see various members of the band running through the audience and doing bass spins, taking full advantage of the energy this music displays to create a highly entertaining live show. Hopefully we see a tour announcement follow the EP and can experience the music in full volume and performance force.
