By We The Kings
The first single from We The Kings' 'Smile Kid' album, might just be the happiest song ever.
The gooey, pop-music sentiments of the chorus are sugar-coated in headrush pop-punk guitars, in a tooth-meltingly sweet double assault. It isn't big, and it isn't clever, but it's guaranteed to leave you 100% happier than before you stuck this single on. The verses, where too many pop-punkers sit back and rest on their laurels, are a quirky, piano-led stomp that'll put all the 'just another pop-punk band' naysayers in their place.
If you're a fan of the last few years of the pop-punk saga (Broadway Calls, Boys Like Girls, You Me At Six, and the like) then this is a rare treat.
