Del Paxton have released their first new track since the 2017 album "All Day, Every Day, All Night". Driven by bold hooks and harmonic riffs, the Buffalo trio make heartfelt, punchy emo reminiscent of the melodic sensibilities of the mid-90’s. Their latest are a set of singles teeming with the exuberance and excitement of being young, alive, and earnest. Already met with excitement from Washed Up and emo heads worldwide, the EP "September, Bedtime, Ontario" is available for pre-order now.
The lead single, "September”, out now, is an ode to camping in the Adirondacks, evoking vintage emo and punk nostalgia, while lyrically channelling an anti-nostalgic balm for living in the moment. Reflections on long-term friendships shine through call-and-response vocals that echo euphorically over dexterous rhythms and crunchy start-stop melodies. With their overdriven choruses of diaristic contemplation, Del Paxton's thoughtful ruminations stir up the passions of prolonged youth and the challenges of holding onto friends you could never let go.
The band have shared an equally nostalgia-inducing music video for "September", spliced together from footage of past tours. In this now fourth month of quarantine in the US, the intimacy of a basement show, and the rollercoaster of a road trip with friends are memories I'm clinging to desperately. "September, Bedtime, Ontario" arrives August 19. Enjoy responsibly :)
