Sharp/Shock stream second album “Youth Club”

CA punks Sharp/Shock are now streaming their album “Youth Club” off of Heart & Skull Records. 

Sharp/Shock last released Unlearn Everything on June 10th, 2016. According to Dan Smith, “For me, Youth Club is a pure and honest representation of us as people and players, it’s another step further for Sharp/Shock and pushes the boundaries slightly, without straying from what we do. There are a couple more aggressive songs like ‘Bad Lad’ and ‘Steps,’ but I love that it’s balanced out by songs like ‘Dancing All Night’ and ‘Walking A Thin Line.’ Lyrically, songs like ‘Just Can’t Get My Head Around It’ and ‘Nuclear Family’ are my favorites—just real life issues that will hopefully get people thinking.”

The album is available for purchase here, or you can stream the entire album here.

Breakdown just seemed appropriate for what I was going through at the time. My relationship had fallen apart and I was dealing with it in some very unhealthy ways. The upside was I started writing lyrics for the first time in nearly a decade.
