In case you weren’t aware, Magnolia Park released a new single called ‘Do Or Die,’ featuring Ethan Ross, and spoiler alert: it’s a banger. We’ve told you that you need to check out this Orlando-based pop-punk band. If you haven’t yet, now’s the perfect time!
Even though this is pretty different than anything they’ve released before, we’re absolutely digging it. It starts off with a techno, video game-esque vibe that really hypes us up. Ethan Ross starts rapping and we’re hooked! They switch it up and the song gets heavier, and we love how they effortlessly mix genres. It’s exciting to see artists branch out and experiment with different styles to create something truly unique and something we haven’t heard before. They released a video for it, which you can check out below!
CW: Photosensitivity. You can also stream the song here!
If you haven’t heard, Magnolia Park are going on a headlining tour! It kicks off in their hometown of Orlando, FL on March 3rd and wraps up in Tampa, FL on April 1st. You can check out the full list of dates and snag tickets here!
To get ready for their upcoming shows, here are three songs we’re hoping make the setlist.
‘Don’t Be Racist’
The title really says it all because unfortunately, this still has to be said. Shoutout to them for raising awareness with powerful lyrics. Not only does it address racism in the scene, but systematic anti-black racism, as well. Lyrics like “You got your knee on my neck and I can’t breathe” may make some people uncomfortable, but it’s an important conversation that needs to be had.
‘I should’ve listened to my friends’
We can all appreciate a song with classic pop-punk vibes! One of the main themes of the genre is loving your friends, but sometimes, you get too caught up in love and don’t listen to them. And as it almost always turns out, you should’ve.
‘Sick Of It All’
This song is from their debut album, Halloween Mixtape, and honestly, we’ll never get “sick of” this song. This song goes hard and even harder live! Hopefully, our arm doesn’t get too tired from finger-pointing because you just can’t not with this song.
