Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
While the more obvious side of punk rock tends to be its discontent, New York's Iron Chic use their melodic punk to evoke the genre's sense of community and oneness unlike any other. Formed in 2008, the band cultivated a driving and infectious sound packed with so many singalong choruses and who-oh-ohs that it's hard not to want to dive in and be a part of the action. Pair a sound like that with songs whose lyrics tackle the disappointment, angst, and uncertainty of life, and you have a virtual maelstrom of emotive and engaging punk reminiscent of bands like the Bouncing Souls. The band returns on Side One Dummy with their third full-length effort, You Can't Stay Here, the long awaited follow-up to 2013's The Constant One.
