It’s been fourteen years since Screamfeeder have released an album and to be honest, it’s like they’ve never left. Opening with the anthemic ‘Half Lies’, their new album sounds as bold as they ever have. From Brisbane, Screamfeeder has toured the world many times over and with this new set of songs, it seems that there is a renewed sense of energy and charisma to show.
Kellie Lloyd and Tim Stewart who are the main writing force behind Screamfeeder, have definitely brought it to the table with songs such as ‘Got A Feeling’, ‘Alone in a Crowd’ and ‘Sonic Souvenirs’. After a few listens of the album, I couldn’t see to shake the melody to ‘All Over It Again’ from my mind. Infectious and catchy as hell, this album is one that will be stuck in your mind for days. Without realising, you’ll be driving along or in the middle of the supermarket, and melodies from all across Pop Guilt will instantly come back to you. It’s all down to brilliant song-writing.
Sounding like the soundtrack to your friend’s high school party, this is an album that surprises you with melodies again and again. Ballsy guitar and sweet rock vocal melodies make Pop Guilt an album to bring a smile to your face again and again.
