The Hangups “No Expectations” 7″

This is the second EP of this Swedish band. They play pop punk the way it used to sound on Lookout! Records in the early 00s, but this 7″ is out on Monster Zero Records (based in Austria.) They don’t try to change the world, or even the style, but they do it really well, with youthful energy and passion. You can hear this in songs like “Stupid World” or “Out Of Order.” “Done With You” has a bit of a ’77 punk flavour although it has more to do with skateboards than heroin chic.
If you’re like me and don’t really listen to this style these days, just give this 7″ a try, because these guys definitely know what they are doing! /Laurent C.
