EDITORS’ NOTES

Singer Kellin Quinn’s ringing tenor pulls this punk-pop train with bright-eyed aplomb. Themes of youthful self-deprecation, yearning, and dissatisfaction reign (check the irresistible “Go Go Go,” “We Like It Loud,” and “The Strays,” for starters), and the guitars often blaze like a sky full of shooting stars. Yet melancholy seeps in: “Gold” is a punk-pop stunner, using acoustics to tug hearts, while the title tune and “November” show mad love for old Paul McCartney. Produced by the in-demand John Feldmann, the album shows songwriting that's crisp and alive; it reveals a band on their fourth album evolving well beyond their post-hardcore beginnings.
