FIM: Panama Pop-Punk and Emo a la Early Brand New
Brand New finally released a new album this year, one that’s very dark and just feels heavy, so I’ve become nostalgic for Your Favorite Weapon-era emo pop-punk that’s upbeat and full of great riffs and passionate singing. Panama’s FIM fills that void for me. Every track on the excellent new Memorias EP is a winner, each song enjoyable on its own and filled with several singalong moments that all good catchy punk songs need. Bonus points for the shark album cover. Also, check them out via Instagram and YouTube.
