We the Kings

S-Curve Records

Before you ask: yes, it is THAT We the Kings. For those of you who didn’t get their clothes from Hot Topic, wore two pounds of eye shadow, and didn’t go to Warped Tour like an annual religious pilgrimage, We the Kings came onto the scene with their single “Check Yes, Juliet.” Admittedly, I haven’t heard anything from them other than their landmark single, so I was excited to see what the band had to offer from their newest album Six.

 

The album is a combination of their signature pop punk/emo/Hot Topic-core, but also adds in synth pop. Yellowcard brought in a violin player, and We the Kings brought in a keyboard player. Six is an album that is less pop punk and more straight up pop, especially when you have songs like “Mama Knows Best.”

 

I won’t waste your time: if you were looking for emo/pop punk, you’ll be mostly disappointed. We the Kings goes in the direction of contemporaries like Panic! at the Disco where they completely embrace electronic and contemporary pop. Like, they go all in. Songs on Six like “Festival Music” and “Alive” sound like songs from the Charlie Puth and Shawn Mendes playbook. I applaud We the Kings for trying to reinvent themselves, but there’s something weird about a band doing a quick-worded melodic pseudo-rap part with “Festival Music” and ending the part by saying “aye”. It’s admittedly jarring.

 

Nonetheless, if you’re looking for the next summer playlist, you can find songs on here that won’t be skipped if added into your playlist. I recommend “Planes, Trains, and Cars” and “Mama Knows Best.” Go crazy.
