Mishap - Single Review: Hey, Allie!

04 Aug 2017 // A review by butch181
Mishap's latest release Hey, Allie! is the best definition of pop punk; minimal lyrics, with a lot of repetition, with a simple chord progression and standard timing. While those things could be considered negative things by some when you're looking at technical musicianship, in a pop punk setting, this is the ideal product. It follows the general formula to create what ends up being a very upbeat and catchy track. With only six unique lines of lyrics in the songs, it would be very simple for a live crowd to sing along with (FYI Fact: The repeated name "Allie" constitutes approximately 28% of the lyrics).

There is a lot of pop punk influence that can be heard in this track, most notably that of Green Day, with Isaac Lundy and Datu Beech's combined vocals having similarities to that of Billy Joe Armstrong. The clear, crisp style gives Mishap a fresh sound that is pleasing to the ears, and will no doubt take the band far if they continue to push forward.

About Mishap

Mishap are a pop-punk trio from Wellington, formed in March 2016. They have a style that is somewhere between the simple, raw sound of 90s Green Day and Blink-182 and the tight, modern sound of bands such as The Story So Far, Neck Deep and State Champs.

In 2016, Mishap released their debut EP, Toaster with most popular tracks being Hey Allie and The Scrumpy Song. On these songs, Mishap have made a name for themselves among the New Zealand rock community, touring exhaustively around the North Island.

For Mishap, 2017 held the release of their second EP, Not Feeling This, two fully funded music videos and touring with pop punk pals Fire For Glory, Braves, Lookin Up, Barracks and heaps of other rad bands! Their first (professional) music video was released on the 16th of March for their single/title track of Not Feeling This.

Gig Review: Rise Against w/ Dead Favours @ Logan Campbell Centre, Auckland - 19/02/2018
20 Feb 2018 // by butch181
In a rather unconventional choice, the other international act that was touring with Rise Against, Berri Txarrak, would be opening the night, ahead of the local act, Dead Favours. Berri Txarrak being a band originating from Basque Country (an autonomous community in northern Spain), whose songs are sung completely in the Basque language (which is linguistically unrelated to any other known living language), they undoubtedly had a difficult job ahead of them to warm up the crowd.

Gig Review: Robbie Williams with Tami Neilson @ Spark Arena, Auckland 14/02/2018
15 Feb 2018 // by butch181
Spark Arena has been completely changed since last nightís Paramore concert, now utilising the full arena space, and with additional stage pieces running down the centre of the Standing Floor area, the air is full of anticipation in what looks to be an immersive experience. The only opening act for the night came in the form of Tami Neilson, a country & soul singer/songwriter, and Silver Scroll winner.

Gig Review: Paramore @ Spark Arena, Auckland 13/02/2018
14 Feb 2018 // by butch181
The crowd was bustling as Aucklandís Spark Arena slowly filled up. Not a full arena show, but the stage had been brought forward enough to ensure everyone was crowded in together.

Jed Parsons - Single Review: Get Lost
03 Feb 2018 // by butch181
Get Lost is the debut single from Jed Parsons, and makes a heck of an introduction. Composed of an almost mediocre arrangement that has had dissonance and discord purposefully inserted into it, to present a juxtaposition of the normal and the fantasy.

Jas Josland - Album Review: See What You Did There
03 Feb 2018 // by butch181
See What You Did There is Jas Josland's debut album consisting of 11 tracks and a total run-time of almost 37 minutes. With only one song breaking the four-minute mark, these tracks on the debut album are on the shorter side, running less than three and a half minutes long, on average.

Gig Review: End of an Era Night 2 @ Kings Arms, Auckland - 27/01/2018
30 Jan 2018 // by butch181
I wasn't present for the Night 1 performances of the End of an Era shows, but by all accounts from those that had been there, it had been a great night with a good turnout, especially considering it was competing with large international acts performing at other venues (such as Pink Floyd's Roger Waters at Spark Arena). So I was definitely looking forward to the nights' performances.

Marina Bloom and Moving Stuff - Album Review: When I Am Gone
16 Jan 2018 // by butch181
The piano is an often under-recognised and under-utilised instrument. Even though the majority of musicians in this modern day will use a keyboard, it's often to play more "exotic" sounding instruments.

VAZEY - Single Review: Dreamers
16 Jan 2018 // by butch181
Dreamers is a well-balanced, light, summery track. While the track feels simplistic in its overall sound, the lead guitar provides properly weighed riffs, that complement the melody and vocals of the track without overpowering the rest of the composition.
