poptropicaslutz! and Magnolia Park at Sad Summer Fest by Jessica Griffith
Long Island based hyper-punk duo, poptropicaslutz!, share a new single titled “catastrophe” with Epitaph labelmates Magnolia Park. Produced by Lucky West (DREAMERS, Weathers) and Morgoth (Polyphia, JuiceWrld), the Gen-Z musicians come together for an intersection of hyper-pop and easy-core, supported by a shared pop sensibility.
“catastrophe is a song about self-destruction and collateral damage….. when her murderous rampage just wasn’t enough of a red flag,” poptropicaslutz! explain. Magnolia Park also comment, “This song makes being taken advantage of feel so sweet and heartbreaking.” Listen below!
Over dreamlike synths and a pulsating rhythm racing at breakneck speed, poptropicaslutz! members Nick Crawford and Christian Cicillia trade witty lines as the track is overtaken by the fullness of heavy guitar riffs and doomsday-esque drums. Magnolia Park vocalist Joshua Roberts lends an impassioned vocal breakdown blended with electronics for this dystopian daydream.
