The Hung Ups = NOFX + The Queers + Chixdiggit
Well, the heartbreak-addled Hung Ups are back again with their love-deprived pop punk songs. Lovesick encapsulates all the necessities, including sympathetic lyrics, clean guitar melodies, fast-paced drums and vocal harmonies consisting of ohs and ahs. Songs of heartbreak are certainly not new to the average music listener—some pop artist trying to tell his or her personified Romeo and Juliet story through an acoustic guitar with piano or string accompaniment—these guys accept their demise for what it is and say “fuck you” to their former lovers. –Eric U.
