Attic Salt - "Mud"

Every time I think I can safely say I don't like pop punk or emo, a band like Attic Salt comes around and forces me to like them. Hailing from Springfield, IL, they've just released a new song called "Mud." "Mud" starts off with singer Alyssa Currie and an acoustic guitar, so it might fool you into thinking it's that 90's alt-rock singer/songwriter style. And then the rest of the band kicks in, and it turns out you've been tricked into liking some pop punk. Although, "Mud" isn't your stereotypical pop punk song. There's far more power pop and alternative rock thrown in here, so we can all pretend we don't secretly like pop punk. But, all anti-pop punk jokes aside, this is a truly solid rock song that you're going to like. It's like a combination of artists like Laura Stevenson & The Cans and Nervous Dater, so you know we have to be all in.

You can watch the video for "Mud" below. Get Wise, the new album from Attic Salt, will be out September 25 on Jump Start Records. You can pre-order a copy via the label's Bandcamp. For more on Attic Salt, check out the band's Facebook and Twitter.
