Essex based Pet Needs have released a new song that is fast and abrasive punk wrapped around a gushy love song. "Separation Anxiety" is a melodic punk song that speeds through the verses and gets even faster for the guitar solo, but slows down a bit for the chorus. It's a fun, breakneck speed love song that reminds me of the Buzzcocks. Punk love songs are nothing new, but they are rarely this hard or fast. Even the legends get at least a little softer for a love song, but apparently no one sent Pet Needs the memo.
Frontman Johnny Marriott says of the new song:
You can watch the video for "Separation Anxiety" below. Intermittent Fast Living is due out February 16 on Xtra Mile Recordings. For more on Pet Needs, check out the band's website.
