WOES Unveil New Track ‘Suburbs’

Serving up that pop-punk goodness, you won’t be able to get enough of the newest track from Woes.

Woes 2019

Scottish pop-punkers Woes return with their newest track Suburbs, and it’s a blistering cut full of the catchy melodies and high-energy we’ve come to expect from pop-punk. The first new material since the release of their Self Help EP last year, it debuts the addition of guitarist Luke Bovill to the band.

An unassuming introduction of melancholy-tinged lyrics and gentle guitar strumming are joined by pounding drums to gradually build towards an explosive chorus. Once we get to the chorus, it’s a colossal tour-de-force that brings all of the feelings to the forefront, with the lyrics ‘I guess I’ve had my shot, go live the life you want’ allowing a coming to terms with past feelings whilst frenetic guitars thrum about underneath. The visuals for the track see the band moving in furniture in the background and later removing it, whilst an impassioned vocal performance is given in the foreground.

Explaining the track, vocalist DJ says:

Suburbs was the first track we wrote when Luke joined the band. The song is about having a relationship with someone, in your home town or wherever. Then moving away and losing contact with them and wondering what they’re up to, if they’re still there, if you went back if they’d be pleased to see you.

Catch the band on one of their upcoming live dates.
