Catchy, upbeat, and relatable, the band Mcrae from Manchester, England has brought to the table an easy to recognize hit with “Postapocalipstick“.
The four-man band tells a story about living a complacent life where the feeling of falling behind is constantly nagging, but being caught up in the day to day routine seems to have a strong, inescapable hold that only furthers the problem. It’s easy for most to think about times spent with friends fooling around while being told they’re not living up to their full potential by figures of authority, and Mcrae captures the feelings of stress that are brought out by these moments of a stalemate through sounds made popular in pop and punk music throughout the years.
I did find the lyrics hard to understand at certain points (mainly due to the accent of being across the pond), but “Postapocalipstick“ is a song that is easy to listen to again and again. With the kind of sanguine guitar riffs and drum beats I’ve experienced throughout the ’90s, I was quickly enraptured by this song’s optimistic tempo and story that I continue to experience to this day. Mcrae is a band to be remembered as they make their way further into the spotlight, and with a song name as cool as Postapocalipstick, it’ll be easy for me to want to find out more about them.
