Boston's The Jacklights specialize in ultra-hyper pop punk, and their latest double single is a perfect example of that sound. "Womanchild" is almost too fast to be this melodic. It's the kind of pop punk song that's impossible to sit still during. It's an absurdly fun song that seems to mostly be Nilagia McCoy apologizing for bad behavior, which is very, very genre specific. While many of their peers could make this kind of song sound crass or immature, McCoy comes off charming and genuine. "Underachiever" slows it down a bit, but it's still a fuzzed out as possible upbeat pop punk song. It's rare to find a band in this genre that makes music equally fun with clever lyrics, but The Jacklights are quickly becoming masters of that.
You can listen to "Womanchild" and "Underachiever" below. The single is currently available via Red On Red Records, and you can download a copy via Bandcamp. For more on The Jacklights, check out the band on Facebook and Instagram.
