3rd TIMES A CHARM – ‘EP Collection’ Review

3rd TIMES A CHARM – EP Collection

3rd_times_a_charmNew Jersey pop-punk quartet 3rd Times a Charm have announced a new release, EP Collection for September. The record draws on previously released material as well as brand new tracks, with the band set to tour in support of the new release this fall.

The 12 tracks begin with No More Ducks as the band display a New Found Glory vibe with some excellent drumming supporting some soaring vocals and chunky riffs. The team here at punk online were immediately drawn to the sound emanating from my speakers with nods of approval all around. On Mantuckit the band go full on pop-punk with some melodic vocals and serrated guitars adding to the accessibility of the sound!

The band have some funny song titles with Dad Pants right up there with the best with a Fat sound and they continue with the naming with Nicki Minaj Sucks a bouncy song with pace and power. 3rd Times A Charm show a folkier side with Changes displaying just an acoustic guitar and mournful vocal but get back to business with Tiptoe with its punchy riffs and bass sections.

Support Beams brings forward a dirtier guitar sound with an up front vocal as the entire sound changes to a rawer DIY feel. This rawness continues on Shattered and the band sound better for it as their energy and passion is brought to the fore and Mind Games carries on the feel replete with neat riffs.

The acoustic guitar underpinning a plaintive vocal is repeated on Waiting whereas Empty changes things up again to deliver a punchy pop-punk track. The album concludes with Crossroads with a Cracker vibe adding to the overall package. The album is for all fans of Blink 182, NoFX and the like and you can check 3rd Times a Charm here: https://3rdtimesacharm.bandcamp.com/
