Into The Cosmos

Rating: 4/5

 
 

 

 

Californian punk band Get Married released their sophomore EP, Into The Cosmos, earlier this month via Wiretap Records, Into The Cosmos follows on from their impressive 2015 debut, Four Songs, and builds and refines the style they introduced us to on their initial release. Get Married have a fine pedigree as the members have been involved in the Californian punk scene, in particular guitarist and vocalist Jaake Margo is well known in his local scene, having previously been in bands such as Cheers to DoerrDisabled Intent and Kill The Bats prior to the formation of Get Married, now hopefully Get Married will gain him recognition outside of his native state.

Dream Boy opens Into The Cosmos with an infectious blast of upbeat pop punk with a breakdown that comes straight of the doo wop handbook and boasts lush harmony vocals on the chorus, Kuzco’s Poison ups the ante with a more frantic number that contains all the elements of the opener, but all delivered in a more frenetic style. Kingpin continues the joyous upbeat vibe of the EP with a rock ‘n roll chorus and finally New Neighbour brings Into The Cosmos to a close, this is a shift in style and they dip their toe into the more energetic side of indie, it reminds me more of The Fratellis or Dirty Pretty Things than their punkier influences, don’t interpret that as a bad thing as it isn’t, as this just adds another dimension to an impressive EP.

Into The Cosmos channels early doo wop with a modern punk twist along with elements of emo, indie and pop punk, think of Elvis Costello fronting a cross between Silver Sun, Weezer and Masked Intruder and you’re probably about there. Get Married‘s latest EP marks my final review of 2016 for The Punk Site, and after the year that 2016 has been, one that’s seen us lose far too many faces and seen too many idiotic decisions made, but if you want something to lift you spirits and see you into 2017 in fine style then Into The Cosmos would make a damn fine addition to your new years eve playlist. You can stream Into The Cosmos on Spotify and Apple Music and download via iTunes and Bandcamp, the EP is also available on Green or Red  7″ vinyl via Wiretap Records.

Get Married To Release ‘Into The Cosmos’ EP

get-married-itcCalifornian rock n’ roll punks Get Married have announced their new EP titled Into The Cosmos out this December via Wiretap Records. The follow up to their debut EP, that was appropriately titled Four Songs, that was issued in March 2016.

The new songs capture Get Married‘s potent synthesis of classic sounds plucked from the recent, and distant, past that is fuelled by a nostalgia for early rock & roll and doo-wop, as well as first-wave emo and shoegaze.
