The Coppard brothers return as Smash Boom Pow. “Way Too Much” displays all of their pop composition abilities but there’s a veneer of rawness and punk harshness. We’re digging’ it.

“It was cathartic and therapeutic all at once, as well as satisfying for me as an indie rock fanboy,” explains band member Ulysses. “When I sing “you’re asking way too much of me” it’s not about an unreasonable labour request, but rather unfair emotional demands and the psychic damage they can inflict. My personal experience of this conflict was confusing to say the least. On one hand you have love for someone and are inclined to compromise for the sake of the relationship, on the other you’ve gotta be true to your experience and set the record straight. I’m not about living a lie.”
