New Jersey-based pop punk outfit the Call Out
are back with a new single, "4:36 a.m.," and much like the tunes off their Closer EP
, this new track tells a coming of age tale one hooky melody and churning guitar riff at a time. Recorded with Tom DeGrazia
), it didn't take long for this song to come together.
"One weekend we all decided we wanted to pump out a song, so we went to my house in New Brunswick (New Jersey)." We spent the whole weekend just hanging out, playing Xbox, and working on the song," recalls guitarist Anthony Manginelli.
"By Sunday, we had the finished and polished product! We are very happy with the song and we hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we [enjoyed] writing it!"
Despite the mere 48-hours it took to bring this song to life, this tune still boasts more guitar parts than you'll know what to do with, and a chorus part that can be deemed as nothing short of pop punk ear candy. In fact, the only thing more impressive than this tune's tight sound is its relatability factor. After all, as Manginelli tells it, this one was "inspired by someone who felt detached in a turbulent relationship."
Raise your hand if you haven't been there before—and then pat yourself on the back for good judgment, kid.
