You Know The Drill
Review by Jared Stossel
Pop-punk can be complex, but often times, it's simply a fun genre. Love and loss, friendships, and happiness are touched upon, in an upbeat, energetic manner. With a band like You Know The Drill, you get straightforward pop-punk with complexities mixed in throughout. This will make more sense in a moment. The Birmingham quintet have released Losing Streak, their debut EP, to the world with five high-energy tracks that highlight the most fun and enjoyable aspects of the genre, while still being able to lyrically explore deeper topics surrounding hardship. Some bands get lost in the mix when they try to take on both of these aspects, but You Know The Drill is able to accomplish this rather well. It is indeed a promising debut.
