With its self-professed mix of “indie rock for the pop punk children, pop punk for the indie rock children,” Snow Ellet’s Suburban Rock Star was one among our favourite EPs of 2021. Now, on the heels of final November’s Quarter-Life Disaster team-up “Cannonball” (not a Breeders cowl) and December’s “Boys Don’t Cry” (sure a Remedy cowl), Chicago-based Eric Reyes is coming at us with one other prolonged play.
The five-song assortment Glory Days is dropping subsequent month. Immediately Snow Ellet has launched its opening observe, a ridiculously catchy emo-pop observe referred to as “19” that exists in continuum with bands just like the All-American Rejects and Oso Oso. “19” leans more durable into early ’90s Jesus Jones-style drum machines than earlier Snow Ellet materials, matching the stuttering programmed beat with power-poppy emo vocal hooks aplenty. The electrical guitars additionally sound like hooks, fervently slicing or gracefully chiming relying on the wants of the second. Through the muted, lo-fi intro, Reyes begins, “The time passing is important/ I believed I’d say 19 for some time/ I used to be unsuitable.”
