Underrated Melbourne punk band Stuck Out’s new EP You Won’t Come Home has all the ingredients necessary for a classic pop-punk release: confident riffs, rhythmic bravado, and lyrics full of emotional vulnerability.
The high energy of opener Stitch is a thin veil over the emotionally reflective lyrics underneath; Self Doubt – featuring Between You And Me’s Jake Wilson – is full of feel good hooks; and Weight squeezes a lot into its ambient and ominous 90-second life.
Soft and slow lead single Fade Away is a gleaming highlight in the six track effort. Considering YWCH clocks in at under 20 minutes long, the five-piece have delivered a well-thought out and emotional record that is all killer, no filler.
You Won’t Come Home is out now via Greyscale Records.
