Review by Nicole Roberts
Melbourne's Stuck Out have a new offering, You Won't Come Home, to be released this February 9th via their brand new home, Greyscale Records.
The band are quite new, and I hadn't really heard much about them (even though, from the looks of their resume, they've definitely been putting in the work supporting heavy hitters such as Real Friends, Moose Blood and The Getaway Plan) so I went into this with no idea what to expect. Thankfully, I was pleasantly surprised. While the band have been billed as alternative rock, I do feel that they fall more on the pop-punk side of the spectrum - which definitely isn't a bad thing. Pop-punk, when done well, is a very fun, catchy genre, and the band have definitely done it well.
With punchy guitar riffs and upbeat drum beats, Stuck Out really draw you in with their sound right from the start. Whether it's the energetic 'Stitch' or the slower, more meaningful, heartfelt 'Linger' which hits you right in the feels. Lead single 'Self Doubt' is definitely a highlight, and showcases a more fast-paced style akin to punk rock, packing some solid riffs and punchy drum patterns.
All in all, the EP is a solid taste of what Stuck Out have to offer. While at times the songs can blend with each other, their take on the genre is an interesting one, and You Won't Come Home will undoubtedly earn them some new fans.
