Summer City – We Were On A Break

I like the sense of reckless abandon that the music has going for it. The song takes the best elements from pop/rock/punk and nu-metal to deliver an extremely hooky tune. I love the unique quality of the vocalist, there is this slight bit of sarcasm to his tone some thing I really enjoy. The guitar work is really tight. Nice and upbeat drum line keeps it nice and light. It’s very punky in that way. Upbeat tempo makes you all happy and dancy but I can’t say the lyrics necessarily match the message. However given the hooks and the way catch chorus you can’t really label it a straight up punk song. There’s some really cool electric aspects with how they play with the vocals and almost laser style background sounds. Overall this is a pretty damn cool track.


Would I Listen to More of Their Stuff: I would be happy to give their other stuff a listen. I liked We Were on a Break well enough that I’m interested in the rest of their catalog. I could see putting this little ditty on a playlist with some Blink, Sum41 and Good Charlotte.
