Hey, remember what good pop-punk mixed with melodic hardcore sounds like? Yeah, didn’t think so. Lucky for you, Richmond’s Hold Tight! is here to remind you with their latest EP “Call The Zoo”, and let me tell you, it fucking rips.
Following up their LP release from last year “Can’t Take This Away” (which if you don’t have, do yourself a favor and grab a copy) “Call The Zoo” is much more aggressive and to the point. With 7 songs clocking in around 5 or 6 minutes, they don’t leave any room for filler.
“Call The Zoo” reminds me a lot of Saves The Day’s “Through Being Cool” with a touch of Lifetime and Kid Dynamite in there, and holy shit did they blend it all together well.
In the spirit of the EP I’m keeping this post short, but go grab yourself a copy unless you hate fun.
