This is a song you won’t want to miss out on! We are already loving Wilmette, so you should check them out too! Especially, since they have an amazing brand new single that just came out.
Tuesday, the upcoming pop-punk band Wilmette put out a brand new song ‘Alchemy,’ along with its music video. This is the second single off the band’s upcoming self-titled EP, which will be released on September 25 via Mutant League Records. To go along with the upcoming EP they also have merch available for pre-order.
‘Alchemy’ is one of those songs that as soon as we heard it, we knew it was going straight on our playlists! Overall it is just an amazing pop-punk track that has a bit of a mid-2010’s feel to it, back when State Champs and The Wonder Years were still on the rise. It is nice knowing there are still some new pop-punk bands, like Wilmette, starting to make a name for themselves.
We love the vocals on this track a ton. Within one second you can feel the emotion, which we are suckers for, a track that pulls you right in for the ride. As soon as the intro ends, you get dragged right into a Knuckle Puck style scream, ya know the one that just puts the icing on the cake, we are locked in.
“I think we’re over this, I’ve felt this coming from afar,” that is the beginning of an immaculate chorus. “Now I stand on broken feet with distant alchemy.” Lyrically, this song is already a 200/100, with words that have most likely never been used in a pop punk song, just in the first verse alone, like the word “innocuous.”
“I don’t think I can take this anymore
And now I’m lying on your floor
Overthinking things like usual”
Those lyrics go back to what we were conveying earlier about this being pop-punk gold. If those lyrics don’t get you hyped up, we’re not sure what will.
Residing in the windy city of Chicago, Wilmette combines pop-punk and hardcore with their own edge that relies on pop hooks, honest lyrics, and strong vocals. The band’s emphatic label debut ‘Anxious Body’ was produced by Seth Henderson at ABG Studios, which is the same studio as Knuckle Puck and Real Friends, and was mastered by Kris Crummet, who also does the tracks for Sleeping With Sirens.
Wilmette have already received great praise from some of the biggest publishers in the pop-punk scene, with magazines such as New Noise, Rock Sound, and Alternative Press weighing in on the band’s sound and world take over.
