One of the more interesting discoveries we've had this year is Birmingham, Alabama's The Blips. The local supergroup just released another single off their upcoming album. If you loved their previous single, "Throw Me Around," you're going to be all in for the newest one. "Walking Home" is an impossibly jangly song that somehow combines pop punk and Americana/southern rock. It's pop punk with a near country twang, and just the slightest hints of late 60's British psychedelia thrown in there. It is filled with some of the sunniest vibes and killer guitar solos, which isn't typically a thing with pop punk. "Walking Home" may just be impossible to not love, even if you normally hate pop punk or anything even slightly country.
You can listen to "Walking Home" below. The Blips' self-titled album is due out April 9 on Cornelius Chapel Records. You can pre-order the album here. For more on The Blips, check out the band on Bandcamp.
