    Live Well

    Perfectly Temporary


    Released September 6, 2019

    By Liz Foster

    Boston Rock Radio


    Though Warped Tour may have died, its image, sound, and legacy remain alive and well. On, Perfectly Temporarythe debut album from New York pop-punkers Live Well, the sounds of emo and pop punk thrive. Soft, somber sounds juxtapose harsher instrumentals throughout the whole album starting with its dreary opener “Regret,” which echoes the likes of Brand New with its production and Teen Suicide in lead singer Paul Masbad’s wispy vocals.


    The album continues with themes of youth, emotions, and turbulent interpersonal relationships beit with parents, friends, or lovers. The guitars are stormy and clashing as the drums play catch up to the quick paced chords. Lyrically, Perfectly Temporary is angsty yet its tales of woe comes from a wiser perspective than its youthful subjects. On the back-to-back songs “Drunk” and “Coked Out” show the more abrasive side of being young and rebellious, filled with lyrics about falling in love with someone new, being “so drunk,” and “getting coked out and wanting to make out.” Though a bit romanticized, the clear tone of regret that persists throughout the album makes it clear that Live Well’s lyrics are a warning, not an encouragement. The album slows down in its back half as the ballad “Lying” dwells on abuse and “Seed” shows a looser, more lo-fi sound. “Cardigan” strikes another softer note as a broken down ballad that feels less angry and more somber than the rest of the project. In closing, the track “Cool Bands” starts off gentle, but kicks it up a notch with snarling guitars before giving way to a harmonizing chant of “I just wanna be like them,” an ode to friends in the titular cool bands.


    The melancholic themes throughout Perfectly Temporary are energized by passion in Masbad’s voice as he belts and croons his dilemmas over the instrumentals. The sonic influence from bands like Man Overboard and Real Friends plays well with the tone and lyrical content of other alternative staples like Teen Suicide and The Wonder Years, showcasing Live Well’s seamless blend into the genre. Perfectly Temporary may leave you pondering on why you’re stuck in your hometown, but it’s sure to take this New York collective far.
