With their sophomore EP, Totem, Los Angeles’ Culprit are exploring new territories while sticking to those good ol’ hooks. Produced by Dryw Owens (From Indian Lakes, Consider The Theif), the qualities that evoked I The Mighty and Armor For Sleep comparisons linger, but are tinged with HRVRD and Moving Mountains-esque sounds. “Piece Of Eden” sums it up nicely - head to the replies to hear our exclusive of the track. And in honor of the premiere, the band’s giving AP.net users a treat - 15% off all pre-orders for their new EP with the code “absolutepunk” at check-out. So enjoy Eden, and grab Totem on August 20 via Easy Killer Records.
All too often, being young is considered more of a vice than an advantage. Society tells us that we have to grow up, become adults, and figure out who we are and what we want — not necessarily in that order.
Things are never that simple, though. As I prepare for my last semester of college, I realize more and more that I’m scared because I don’t have things figured out yet. And I’m not sure I’m ready to grow up.
When I first heard “Well Wishing,” the opening track on Farewell Fighter's new album Challenges, I was immediately drawn to it on a personal level. The song is a brief but powerful admission of all the fears I’ve been experiencing lately. In it, lead singer Kenny Fleetwood admits, “It’s not just a matter of who I become / I think deep in my heart I’m still way too damn young.” The song sets the stage for an album about being afraid to grow up, but learning to face those fears head on.
“Well Wishing” starts out quiet and slow, with muted guitars under Fleetwood’s velvety vocals. It builds up to its conclusion, which fades almost seamlessly into the song’s follow-up, “Growing Pains.” Unlike its predecessor, “Growing Pains” is full of youthful zeal and vigor, featuring an energetic guitar solo and playful alternating vocals.
As Challenges progresses, it’s obvious that Farewell Fighter favors certain stylistic choices. Many of the songs start out quiet, then blow wide open in a burst of passion. In “Fall” this fit arrives just before the first chorus, when the drums come charging in. Meanwhile “Bridges” features brooding vocals and an edgy, punctuated guitar melody in the first verse, before introducing heavier chords.
