Pop-Punk isn’t dead, well maybe it was for a while, but thanks to bands like Interesting Hobbies Club, the genre seems to be making a comeback. Today, MXDWN is happy to present their new single “Wednesday”. The single is another small teaser for the band’s highly anticipated album. Spring cleaning which is slated for release on March 4.
The band started with frontman and songwriter Jules Caspole, drummer and producer Max Young, and lead guitarist Parker Capp. The trio played a few gigs as Zero Degree in 2019 but only really sold out after adding bassist Alex Prichett, and finally changing their name to what it is today.
Their new single, “Wednesday”, captures a truly fascinating event, partying on a weekday. It’s a strange phenomenon that seems so rebellious and crazy, but can turn into regret the next day (especially if you have to work at 6 am the next day).
“At the surface level, Wednesday is simply a song about getting drunk on a Wednesday,” Pritchett says. “However, the song has deeper connotations of addiction and the toll it has on loved ones. Wednesday was written hungover on a Thursday morning, after an intense night of partying. With a memorable chorus and breakdown classic pop-punk, Wednesday is a testament to bad weekday decisions and rock staples.
The song itself makes for a perfect pop-punk anthem, it’s filled with amazing hard hooks and a classic pop-punk theme of being drunk and regretting a lot, and to be honest who hasn’t been through this before ? That’s what makes the song so relatable but also so catchy. The lyrics are well executed and easy to shout out at home or if you’re at a really cool bar playing Interesting Hobbies Club. The song is reminiscent of one of the truly amazing (and gone too soon) Modern Baseball, with not-so-perfect vocals and brutally honest lyrics.
So to “Wednesday!”
