We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Vancouver, BC blood-brother duo Smash Boom Pow’s new song “Way Too Much” (listen below). The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming sophomore EP, which is scheduled to be released later this year.
The band comment on the song:
“It was cathartic and therapeutic all at once, as well as satisfying for me as an indie rock fanboy. When I sing ‘you’re asking way too much of me’ it’s not about an unreasonable labour request, but rather unfair emotional demands and the psychic damage they can inflict. My personal experience of this conflict was confusing to say the least. On one hand you have love for someone and are inclined to compromise for the sake of the relationship, on the other you’ve gotta be true to your experience and set the record straight. I’m not about living a lie.”
“Way Too Much” showcases Smash Boom Pow’s ability to hide raw hooks inside a nest of razor blade overdrive and pounding drums. The alt-pop project is already gaining traction with the release of their debut EP last year and plan on continuing the momentum with the new EP and an LP in the works. Listening to the track is like watching a grainy 8mm picture, primitive in form, but there’s a vibrant world found in the details. The new offering distills frenetic energy into a hook filled garage pop number, making sure ‘Way Too Much’ invades your brain as you pump your fists to the heavens.
