This one is a little out of the ordinary for the pages of Dying Scene, and I think that’s what makes it pretty cool. Allow us to draw your attention to a project called “Drawing Music.” It’s billed as a “unique art and music series that brings together a collection of visual artists and high spirited rock and roll musicians” toward the shared goal of creating a song and an art project that visually represents that song, resulting in a “fun listen and interesting look that combine to tell familiar stories to those who grew up pursuing rock n roll or art as their passion in live.”
The collective of contributors has been bestowed the name Lovesick Bombs by the project’s curator, John Redmond, himself a veteran of early 2000’s Bay Area skate punk band Secondshot. The third installment of the Lovesick Bombs project is available right here for the first time today. It’s called “Breakfast of Champions,” and it’s described by its creators as telling the story of “an attempt to patch things up with one’s significant other after drinking too much and saying all the wrong things. The partner in the dog house hopes that maybe the thing that caused the problem could also help be the solution. So a plea is made to have a “Breakfast of Champions” (booze brunch) together in order to have some laughs and get over last night’s train wreck behavior.”
Check out the video for Lovesick Bombs’ “Breakfast of Champions” below!
Cleveland’s DOAKS debut album Scaredy Ghost was released towards the end of 2018 with a unique sound that was self described as “a punk rock B-52’s”. This comparison is not without merit, as they have a driving rhythm section, soaring female vocals combined with a grounding male vocal presence and a subtle synth-pop influence. Where they differ is that DOAKS has a darker more serious feel and drops the quirky nature of the B-52’s in favor of a heavier pop punk vibe.
“Total Nightmare” is the album opener and greets us with an ominous syncopated guitar with quiet vocals combo. This quickly expands into a bass and drum heavy pop punk jam with Chelsea’s soaring vocals laid on top. It is one of the catchiest songs on the album and just like a real nightmare it will haunt you when your done listening.
“I Just Want to Drink” follows with a bouncy punk rock blast about the annoying bar culture that interferes with the ability to simply go out and have a drink. From here on out the album steers away from the punk side, not with a reckless abandon but there is a change in the influences and styles as we progress.
The first distinctly different song is “Not a Whore” which opens with a synthetic drum sound and droning lyric delivery. It has a slower, slightly more minimalistic Shiny Toy Guns feel where the music is on the sludgey side and the vocals bounce back and forth between rumbling and soaring. The original comparison to the B-52’s is at its highest with “You Don’t Love Me Anymore” a synth driven jam where Jeremy’s vocals are at the front and Chelsea’s floats ambiently above it. It is heavier and darker but kicks off with a bright keyboard lick.
DOAKS showcases their ability to write some indie rock gems with songs like “I Gotta Go”, “I Must Be a Fool” and “Because I Said So” all of which feature some catchy hooks and are super danceable. However the pinnacle of their indie stylings is the album closer “Waiting All My Lifetime” which has distorted guitars playing with a heavy bass line and the vocals fade in and out creating a sound that is reminiscent of early 90’s Garbage.
Scaredy Ghost is an intriguing listen as they pull influences from a wide variety of styles. This keeps the album from getting stale with repeat listens as there is always something that will catch your ear and either make you dance or grab a beer and chill. DOAKS have promised us new music in 2019 and I am definitely looking forward to more.

German pop punk band Holly Would Surrender are “flipping the bird to conformity”. They’ve announced they are releasing a new EP via White Russian Records on May 26, titled Wish You Were Bread, and what do you know? Dying Scene has got it a few days early. The inspiration for this record came out of a unique place for the band. Lead singer Ole says, “We wanted to try something new this time. We were in a situation, where we on one hand, [we] had to stop as band or on the other hand, work on new material, and besides that, find new members to join.
In this process we decided to work with friends in other bands on our material to get a new focus and expand our sound and music. Every song got a name on it you probably know. Oshie Bichar (Beartooth, City Lights), Callum Amies (the bottom line), Andy Vossenberg (the 101s) and Chris Piquette (Trophy Wives) We really love how the EP turned out. It’s something new but it’s still us. The mixing part took place in the Wachusett studios by Michael Harmon, who we met on tour with Four Year Strong. The mastering was made by Jay Mass (Defeater, State Champs and many more..) We hope you like it as much as we do and will enjoy it!”

London indie-punks Triple Sundae are about to release a video for a new single titled “Pollution” and we’re giving you lot the first look at it. The fresh visuals accompany an announcement of a new six track EP Glow, which will be released this summer. Vocalist, Hassan Afaneh, had the following to say about the new single:
“’Pollution’ is a song that highlights how our own bad habits and ways of procrastinating can poorly affect our mental health without us noticing directly.”
Since 2014, Triple Sundae have been a notable presence in London’s punk rock scene and with the release of Glow we’re expecting them to make even bigger waves. Recorded at Anchor Baby (Ghouls, Chris Slade, Chapter & Verse) and using 2018 EP Peace of Mind as a springboard, the new record draws influence from the likes of The Menzingers, Spraynard, and Jeff Rosenstock.
You can check out the video for the first single from Glow, “Mental Pollution”, below.
