Dude, Lame

Indie Vision Music

Rating: 3.5/5




The Sacramento based punk rock band Light The Way released their brand new six track EP, Dude, Lame, via Indie Vision Music at the end last month, Dude, Lame is a fast paced melodic EP of punk rock that follows on from their 2016 EP, Grace. Whilst their 2016 release was pure pop punk it seems that Light The Way have moved on, but not away, from the formulaic pop punk route with this EP as Dude, Lame indicates that this is a band that are well and truly finding their feet.

A short but sweet intro acts a prelude to the main tracks, chugging guitar lines segue neatly into So Stoked, a track that manages to blend equal parts of melodic hardcore and pop punk to impressive effect. Stag line continues to tread the line between hard edged punk rock and it’s poppier cousin, whilst Voices suddenly brings the EP to a dead halt with it’s dark spoken lyrics that are overlaid on a bed of a sparse and sinister piano. Dead Head returns to the upbeat pop punk that was the hallmark of their previous release and the EP ends with what has become a staple of pop punk releases, the tender acoustic track, in this case the final track, Note To Self, feels like a cross between Blink 182 and Alkaline Trio, which weirdly is exactly what Blink 182 have become.

When compared to last years Grace EP Dude, Lame seems to be a more focused and aggressive release than it’s predecessor, yes this is still a pop punk EP, but it’s one that possesses a bit more muscle than their 2016 release, and for me it’s all the better for it. The harder edge has added something to their sound without sacrificing their own identity, when this is coupled with the two tracks of pure unadulterated pop punk, and the unusual inclusion of the track Voices, you have a varied EP that walks the line between punk and pop punk perfectly.

Dude, Lame is available through all digital networks and via Indie Vision Music here

Rating: 3/5




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.

Grace is now available on all digital networks via Indie Vision Music

The Grace EP is also available as a name your price download via Light The Way‘s Bandcamp here
