Trophy Lungs - Demo 2012

Trophy Lungs is from Boston, Massachusetts and play a catchy form of pop punk that doesn't come off nasily or annoying.  There's some great melodic hooks here that can definitely get stuck in your head.  The transitions are pulled off really well and present some really nice flow.  My faith in pop punk has been restored!

At times I get a Dillinger Four meets Polar Bear Club vibe here.  The production is a bit rough which I think works well, as too clean of production would make this sound a little sterile.  The dual vocals, when done, are pretty superb.  The bass has a nice shiny tone and sits well in the mix with the high gain guitars. 

This is some good stuff right here.
