Toronto's Napoleon have done a rarity on their new single: They've released a raging loud and angry song while keeping it catchy and sorta kinda poppy. "Fullsize Problem" is fast and heavy at times and almost pop punk at others without truly changing up the tempo or aggression between the two. It's like the smoothest whiplash effect you'll ever experience as it wildly and calmly switches between the two sounds. Not too many artists can pull off this level of heavy and poppy, but Napoleon pull it off perfectly.
Napoleon's Jon Elmaleh says of the new song:
“'Fullsize Problem' is hands down the most angry and pissed off song I’ve ever written, it’s definitely a bit different for us, and that’s a good thing, I don’t ever want Napoleon to be a band that repeats ourselves, and besides, sometimes you just gotta say fuck it and write a hardcore song.”
