GraceIndie Vision Music
By AJ Phink
Grace was originally released at the tail end of last year, now Californian pop punkers Light The Way have signed to Indie Vision Music, and with that their EP has now gained digital distribution across all the major networks. Light The Way are an unashamedly pop punk band, there is nothing on here that you haven’t heard before, but the important factor is that whilst the material on the Grace EP isn’t anything new, it is done well, and that is the next best thing.
Note To Self kicks things off with an anthemic dose of nostalgic pop punk, everything about this harks bark to pop punk’s golden era when bands such as Blink 182 could do no wrong, every track on this EP bears the hallmarks of a genre that divides opinion amongst the punk community, personally I do like a bit of pop punk, providing that it doesn’t veer too far into the pop realm. The Grace EP treads a very safe and unadventurous path through the pop punk world, appearing to stop along the way only to cherry pick their favourite elements for inclusion on the Grace EP.
Grace is five tracks of retro pop punk, it has all the harmonies, hooks, catchy choruses and bouncy anthemic hallmarks that you would expect from a band that play pop punk, Light The Way are clearly influenced by the bands they grew up listening to, think of bands such as Set Your Goals, Four Year Strong, The Swellers, The Wonder Years, Yellowcard, Over It and Blink 182 and you know exactly what to expect on the Grace EP.
