Hopt on the heels of their debut album ‘Understanding, and everything else’ Plymouth punks Woahnows have released a new video for the track ‘Puncher’ to coincide with a handful of US tour dates, which saw them in Philadelphia last night and Richmond tonight.
Talking about the track, Tim Rowing-Parker comments “The song is about self-frustration. The way you feel when you fall back in to old negative behaviours you’d hoped you’d grown out of. I got frustrated at something stupid like my computer at home, punched myself in the head and then had to jump straight on my bike to sit next to the sea to calm down. That’s where I wrote all the lyrics in one go, before I was calm enough to go back home. I thought I was past that stuff, but every now and then things bubble up and remind you that you’re just not ‘there’ yet.”
Certainly the song captures that feeling of frustration. It’s messy, pulsating stuff, and if Woahnows have anything its a sense of melody in their songwriting, as it just has this unremitting catchiness about it. It ebbs and flows, but there’s a feeling of running (or maybe) biking) with the sun in your hair, at its muscular and turbocharged best.
