Panic! At The Disco had their first number one album last month. And while it was surprising that the pop-punk mainstays had never accomplished that before, it got us thinking...does this mean pop punk is back? Brand New are going to be headlining Madison Square Garden in July. Is it time to bust out my faded pair of Vans? Maybe. And if there's another band looking to bring a little danceable energy to this pop-punk revival, it's Colorado alt-rockers My Body Sings Electric
We've got the exclusive premiere of My Body Sings Electric's latest single, "Don't Wake Me Up," off their upcoming EP, The Franklin Tapes: Side B
. And it's got the pulsating pop punk hooks and riffage of early Panic! with the swirling danceable guitars of Walk the Moon. This is a track for your friends who wore out their Chucks and skinned their knees too many times skating in high school and also the kids who want a massive hook to sing along with at a concert. Dig the premiere above and a quote from the band about the track below.
"Stylistically speaking, this is easily our most hook/groove oriented song. Contextually, its about going into a dream, or moving into the unknown, with an unsteady confidence - which leads into the next song, where the narrator comes to the realization that 'this is not a dream, it's a nightmare'."
The EP is due out 2/26/16 and can be pre-ordered here
