Review: The Plumcocks – Six One Zero

Artist: The Plumcocks
Album: Six One Zero
Released: Sept. 2, 2017
Genre: Punk/Alternative

Pop punks The Plumcocks came out with their debut release late last summer, named in honor of the area code they call home. The result? Eight high-energy tracks with a youthful exuberance that would make predecessors like Blink 182 and All Time Low proud.

The subject matter on “Six One Zero” is right in line with what you’d expect, with “Pocket Lint” being a tried-and-true song about being a broke adolescent with no job or ambition. Meanwhile, “Secondary Stephanie” is a true rager about a troubled girl who can’t find her way, complete with pounding drums and a sweet bass solo.

A particularly interesting moment is “Humans Are Idiots (It’s Our Time).” Despite a title that seems pessimistic about the human condition, the song contains an uplifting message meant to push the human race toward unity and progress.

Also, watch out for the cool island vibes in the bridge of “Prick,” the album’s closer, which will temporarily transport you to whichever beach you desire in these cold winter months.
