Candy Hearts

The line between nostalgia and rehashing is a bit of a fine one. Some bands can do the sounds of old right, while others just seem to stumble all over their influences. Candy Hearts’ new EP The Best Ways to Disappear definitely falls into the former though, as their formula of gritty pop-punk with a musical twist from two decades ago makes for a fun if also familiar experience through six tracks. The result is something that is tough to shake in terms of catchiness and just plain good songwriting – all while remembering to make a personal touch on the lyrical side of things.
