Big Smile have dropped their new song “Killdozer,” their first release since singing to Anchor Eighty Four Records at the beginning of this month. “Killdozer” features emotional vulnerability, guttural vocals and a song structure reminiscent of the greatest pop-punk bands of the early 2000s.
The narrative in “Killdozer” talks about friend who struggled with drug abuse. Vivid imagery is paired with classic, passionate pop-punk vocals to get you connected. Big Smile make it easy to scream-cry these lyrics, and the energetic instrumentals inspire the listener to move to the melodies.
Previously working with producer Seth Henderson on their debut EP When I Left Home (2018), Big Smile has a similar sound to the other bands that Henderson has worked with. Fans of Real Friends, Knuckle Puck, and Sleep On It will fall in love with “Killdozer.” With this new song, Big Smile have established themselves as a pop punk band to watch.
Listen to “Killdozer,” out now on all streaming services.
