Indiana based quartet Everything We’re Not is a band with a simple mission statement – to play the music that they love. Luckily, they are also playing music that we think YOU will love – a compelling mix of emo, pop-punk and alternative rock brimming with musicality and clever, witty lyrics. Pulling from influences like The Maine, Blink 182, The Wonder Years and Jimmy Eat World, the band is clearly able to write music that evokes the best of the genre, while still sounding exactly like themselves.
“Let It Go” (March 5th, 2021) features legendary Say Anything vocalist Max Bemis and is an absolute earworm of a song. Upbeat guitar riffs permeate the track, with a driving performance from the rhythm section that keeps the song hurtling forward without going off the rails. Bemis lends his usual magic to the track, but Everything We’re Not lead vocalist Jonathan Newton is no slouch – his high flying vocal performance is the star of this track, with a crystal clear voice and impressive range that makes him one of the brightest up and coming storytellers in pop-punk.
” ‘Let it Go’ is a song about young, reckless love, or puppy love. The song has serious elements mixed with more of a carefree vibe. It’s a song going through the rollercoaster of emotion that is young love.” explains Newton.
Expect more music from Everything We’re Not throughout the spring and summer, with an EP forthcoming later in the year.
