Top 15 of 2015: No 10- Handguns ‘Disenchanted’

PNE179_Cover-1024x1024

Handguns released ‘Disenchanted’ on November 13th via Pure Noise Records. They had a lot to live up to after 2014’s explosive ‘Life Lessons’, and boy did they live up to it. The album opens with Little Miss Sunshine’s quote ‘Life is one fucking beauty contest after another. School, then college, then work… Fuck that. And fuck the Air Force Academy. If I want to fly, I’ll find a way to fly. You do what you love, and fuck the rest.” This quote perfectly sets up the album, showing exactly what you’re in for lyrically; change, frustration, hope, anxiety….

Their adrenaline fueled and hyper sound results in a messy, off beat collection of songs. Handguns play a very unique brand of pop punk, but there’s still signs of outside influences here and there, most notibly and to my delight, the second track ‘The Worst In Me’, had a little bit of Bowling For Soup in there. All in all it’s just a consistently great album.

Get the album here, on itunes or stream over on spotify.
