Seeing as we’re on all time pop-punk high at the moment, what better segway than to discuss Lavigne’s boyfriend MOD SUN and his movie of longing conversation, Internet Killed The Rockstar.”
With another artist debunking their favourable genre of hip-hop for the ever-eclectic tastes of pop-punk, it’s showing that the revitalisation is really picking up traction. But is it any good?
With moments of bitter-tastes from Karma to lost lust with Bones, finally driving into the lead single of Flames featuring the unaltered companionship with Lavigne herself, it is an emotive album full of compassion as MOD SUN plays homage to the cathartic self-reflection of addiction, love and sorrow that features so heavily in pop-punk works.
Although the tongue-and-cheek drivel of Rollercoaster and Pornstar lands somewhat flat, these are sidelined when the self-titled work comes into full force rounding off the album on an all-time high.
Although not familiarising himself with his well-known accompaniments of hip-hop, MOD SUN has upped his game spiritually and musically with a monumental return etching himself into the world of pop-punk.
