POWER OF POP MUSIC PoP RECOMMENDS: PUP

PoP RECOMMENDS: PUP

Regular PoP visitors will be keenly aware of my aversion towards ‘pop-punk’ in modern rock parlance. But of course, there is still a place for punk-rock in 2014 for any band who is clever enough to not be limited by ‘genre’ but instead is able to use punk as an attitude to approach music making. Case in point – Toronto outfit PUP, who consists of Stefan on vox / guitar, Zack on drums, Steve on guitar and Nestor on bass and simply classify their music as ‘loud’!

PUP released eponymous debut LP earlier this year and believe me, it is one of the most honest and straightforward rock albums I have heard this year. ‘Honest’ in the sense that the songs do sound like an amalgam of myriad influences with no other agenda than rocking out. Oh that and gorgeous melodies and driving rhythms! Hoping to hear more from this promising band…
