ABSOLUTExclusive: Downbound City

Posted by: Christian Wagner (12/06/12)
Downbound City is a "post-pop punk" band from Trenton, NJ who definitely fits in the Paper + Plastick crowd. Gritty vocals over punk rock beats instantly draw comparisons to peers such as Red City Radio, The Menzingers, and more. The group's debut EP comes out December 18 on Death To False Hope Records. Listen to "So Long Now" on the band's AP.net profile and leave your thoughts in the replies.

A little poppier than I expected. Then again, I really shouldn't have known what to expect, never heard of a genre quite like that before. But it's alright.

Post pop punk? That's a new one. Song is pretty good though.

it's a jersey hipster thing. jersey hipster bands don't wants to be associated with any "mainstream" genre, so they just put "post" in the front of it and then hipsters will think they're obscure.

post pop punk is so fucking amazing yes!

it has the artsy fartsiness of post punk but the catchy and poppiness of pop punk!

That is one of the stupidest things I have ever heard. I sampled it and heard no traces of post-punk. I'm not calling you stupid just that term.

this one isn't very post punk at all, seems more like indie punk actually. I listened to their previous catalouge and none of it is post pop punk at all, just pop punk or indie punk.

about post pop punk...it reminds me of the post punk revival in sorts (inflenced by post punk of previous decades but also sounds very much indie/pop rock).
