Daily Yinz – Bitter Coast – Carry On

A quartet formed in 2020 as an outlet for COVID stress, Bitter Coast released their debut EP in May.

The band dropped the EP’s second track, “Carry On,” as a video last November, but I only got around to checking it out today; better late than never, I suppose. The track bears the hallmarks of pop-punk–drop D guitars chug, drums gallop, and singers harmonize–but the musical building blocks are arranged in uneasy shapes, pushing against each other rather than working in perfect consonance. The song seethes more than it soars, its churning guitar chords hitting like gut punches and driving home the song’s lyrics, which mourn a relationship that has turned from an anchor into a pocket full of stones.
