Punk prodigies Tired of Fighting give punk the resuscitation it seems to need every once in a while. Few artists glamorise punk. Some give it the salute it deserves. With their echoing, soaring compositions and truthful, connected lyricism-they choose to bring it every time. No performance is dull, and their latest single proves it. This one is called Out of the Forest.
BBC chooses to give these rockers airplay because of how addictive their music is. The attention to tone is instantly felt with how the song opens. Like Black Flag or the legends that made this genre what it is, the pockets in between verse sections counts just as much. Their clouding chord strikes might even transcend them to melodic metal like Opeth, but the punk always revisits. The melodic chorus etches itself in your music, soul-bleak but real lyrics creating a swirling flow of melodies that draw you in. Punk usually gets a misunderstood bad rap for being a collective of just ideas. Tired of Fighting balance it out to make it something even someone who isn’t a fan of the genre can relate to. In this lies their true musicianship.
You could hear the initial tremors with their 2020 single, Night Dwellers. Certain scenes in the Netflix show Manifest would be pretty great for this song. The lyrics especially connect really well with the thematics of the show. Listen to their explosive singles on Spotify and dwell into a new form of punk!
