Wisconsin based According to What, who impressed on their debut EP Punk Songs To Hold Hands To, have just released their debut album. Titled A Time You Felt Insecure Around All Your Friends it’s chock full punk-pop tracks that gave my ageing headphones a bit of a hiding. Songs like Mona Lisa, Reason/Squalor and White Flower are noisy and fuzzy as the “girl/boy” vocals bounce off each other. Others such as Metronomic Irregularity are more refrained with the guitars toned down allowing the vocals to flourish. A Time You Felt Insecure Around All Your Friends it isn’t going to be a life changing collection of songs. far from it. What it will be though is fun and a blast. Play extremely loud!
You can buy it digitally from the band or on CD via Jigsaw Records.
