Never Loved is a pop-punk band. The Florida quartet is aware of how you can flip a sneering vocal hook and a parade of energy chords right into a thumping refrain. They're an ideal match for multi-platinum producer Matt Squire, and collectively, they know to not veer too far into studio tips as to lose their edge. At least that's what we are able to inform from "Dead Inside," the primary track the band has ever launched, premiering right now (Nov. 12) on Streets Talkin.
When emo and pop-punk's affect over Top 40 was at its highest, Squire was a large, behind-the-scenes hyperlink between the 2 worlds. Over the second half of the 2000s, the studio stalwart produced scene hits like Panic! At the Disco's "I Write Sins Not Tragedies" and Boys Like Girls' "The Great Escape," resulting in collaborations with budding pop stars like One Direction, Selena Gomez, and Ariana Grande. Squire leans in direction of the rock finish of the spectrum as of late (his 2018 credit embrace Underoath's superior comeback album), however "Dead Inside," his most up-to-date undertaking, calls again to these late '00s glory days.
“’Dead Inside’ is a track about how I struggle the frustration of feeling stagnant in life typically," explains frontman Camm Knopp. In previous initiatives, Knopp had experimented with metalcore and straight-up pop, to blended outcomes, earlier than forming Never Loved.
"I’ve realized that there’ll all the time be these destructive ideas and feelings, and the best way to beat them isn’t by pretending they don't exist," Knopp provides. "It’s a matter of selecting what ideas and feelings I put my power into…typically you simply gotta say fuck you to the 'feels.’”
Never Loved are additionally saying their signing to punk and post-hardcore mainstay Equal Vision Records (Saves the Day, Waterparks, previously Circa Survive), so count on extra music from them quickly.
