    I really like this song. Chorus is awesome.
     
  5. It's a nice song but everything is so underwhelming compared to how excited I was for the first LP. I'm honestly not looking forward to this that much and I was hyping it so hard before "Honey" was released. Both songs have just been painfully mediocre, especially in the hook department.

    Anyone else have "moose knuckle" pop into their head the first time they read the headline?

    I just learned what that was 3 days ago, so yes. Yes indeed.

    All these songs make me even more excited to see them in August. This song is amazing.

    Seeing them for the Eighth time next month, and the ninth & tenth later this year. Too good.

    I really like the hook to this, takes so little time to worm into your brain, and as usual, the cheesy lyrics are just so feel good.

    This band make me ridiculously happy.

    I'll be with you the whole way.

    Great, as always.

    Their whole aesthetic is very much like the 1975 right now

    hello. Supporter

    100%. Not a bad thing in my opinion. The artwork for this album really seems to match the music well, and this song is definitely the direction I thought they'd take after hearing Honey. Going to be great.

    So sad to say how underwhelming both of their new tracks have been. Their debut was so amazing and Honey and Knuckles are just bleh.
     
  16. This is a ton better than Honey

  17. Thank you, I felt like the only one who sees just how mediocre these songs are.

    And I want to add that I LOVED their debut and first couple EPs.

    I'm honestly surprised that the band is going in this direction, considering the overwhelmingly positive response to their debut full-length and a target audience that is notorious for being appalled by a band putting out "more of the same" (because why would we want bands to keep sounding the way they did when we liked them?) while simultaneously being completely averse to radical change. We want artists to "grow," but when they grow in a direction we personally don't like, we condemn them for it. I guess this is a long-winded way of saying the band is taking a major creative risk putting out songs like this. I definitely respect them for that.

    All that said, this is a catchy song. To go along with their previous catchy-as-all-hell song. I'm loving it and can't wait to hear the rest of the album. August is too far away, though. This is clearly a summer album and it won't be coming out until the tail end of it. Not a smart move on Hopeless' part.

    And hey, are we witnessing the birth of modern "pop-emo?" As in, dropping the "-punk" entirely? I think so.

  19. Nah, BLG got their way before them.

    And while I am always open-minded when a band puts out a new release, I have to say what I think and I think these tracks have both been wasted potential. They definitely have catchy fragments but overall, as a lover of emo pop in general (cheesy stuff included), I think these are only okay tracks at best, pretty bad at worst. I'm glad a lot of people are liking them though and I hope the band grows from this but I just can't in good faith say that I'm really happy with the songs.

    I totally agree about the release date being a flub, this album should be coming out in mid-June.

    Constant horror and bone-deep dissatisfaction.

    Love it. The bridge reminded me of The Dangerous Summer.

    Are you talking about Boys Like Girls? Because they were nowhere near emo. They were, like, extra-pop-pop-punk on their first album and then dropped the "-punk" and just became a pop band after that.

    Anyone else getting The Academy Is... vibes from this? Chorus is insanely catchy. Probably one of the more likeable Moose Blood songs for me.

    As basically this sites seemingly biggest Moose Blood fan, this song grows on me with every listen.

    This is a jam for sure. These guys are so good at creating catchy songs. I've already pre-ordered a while back.
