Get Your Head Straight - EP Review: Contrast

Hailing from Milton Keynes, U.K., Get Your Head Straight is a 5-piece up and coming pop-punk band that has a lot to offer for Pop Punk fans everywhere. They have a variety of musical influences ranging from old Pop Punk to other genres like Metal, but they mainly take influence from what could be described as the new wave of Pop Punk.

When we last spoke with Get Your Head Straight, they had just released their music video for their single “Hours.” We featured them on episode 41 back in 2017. Since then, the band has put together a phenomenal EP. That EP is called Contrast.
Contrast can be ranked right up there with mainstream Pop Punk. From the easy listening and positive vibes to the head bopping, feet tapping sing alongs. I found myself reminiscing of Pop Punk bands I listened to as a teenager like Blink-182, New Found Glory, Sum 41, Simple Plan and Jimmy Eat World. It reminded me of how much joy music has brought to me over the years. I’ve never stopped listening to Pop Punk and it will always have a special place in my heart.

 I personally cannot wait to add Contrast to my music library.
Every song on the EP can be considered an absolute standout. You can jump into this EP anywhere and it flows perfectly.

Get Your Head Straight plans to release a couple singles from the EP including “Medusa” and “Excuses.” “Medusa” has more of a melodic feel accompanied by intricate guitar work while “Excuses” takes a more upbeat and very catchy approach. I personally have “Excuses” pegged as one of my favorites on the EP.
Get Your Head Straight will be making waves with the release of Contrast. Keep an eye out for the release date of the EP and singles.
Get Your Head Straight’s Contrast will make State Champs raise their eyebrows and Neck Deep look twice.
