Despite hailing from the distant metropolis of Philadelphia, the alt punkers in Grayscale have certainly made an impact on our shores recently following the release of their sophomore release Nella Vita in September. From running with pop punk get up kids Real Friends to having just been announced for the juggernaut of an event that is set to be Slam Dunk 2020, the rise of the Philly collective is utterly indisputable.

With Confidence have found the perfect way to open their new album Love and Loathing: A simple clearing of the throat. It’s the perfect metaphor for the contradiction of their sound, a laid-back abruptness that gains attention quickly and gives little reason to move on. “That Something” is classic of the band in the janky pop-punk riff, as well as the clean vocal work from Jayden Seeley. With verses laden in hooks, it’s clear why the band opted t...
