CROWN THE KING // GROUNDHOG DAY // EP REVIEW

8

The debut EP from pop-punkers Crown The King has been a long time coming for the band. With hopes to enter the studio in 2020, the band had to pause their hopes of releasing their debut with the pandemic hitting and halting their progress. Rather than sit around and wait, the guys have steadily released singles on their own to keep their progress moving and build their fan base. Now 2 years later than anticipated Groundhog Day is finally here.

While 3 out of the 4 tracks have been released already, it’s still worth holding out for the full EP to hear all the tracks together as one. The band have captured all the elements which make a great Pop Punk record from the energetic rhythms to the catchy choruses. The yet unreleased “I Miss You (But I Don’t Feel Bad)” perfectly captures the angst that underlies the genre as it hits all the notes of a post break up song. The title track also picks up with those music breaks which often appear in the genre showing that these guys know exactly the kind of music they want to make and the genre they want to be part of.

All in all, Crown The King are an exciting new band to break into the Pop Punk scene. Having seen the progress the band have made so far, I’ve no doubt it won’t be long till we hear from these guys again with more Pop-Punk greatness.
