This band has a great way of summing up the New Jersey punk vibe with their track, "Not Afraid." Especially with lyrics like "Nice to meet you, fuck you too." You can easily tell where the sound is coming from. These guys perfectly capture the raw sound and power of punk with their crunchy guitar tone, and fuzzy bass. The tone and the songwriting is very simple and old school, reminding me that a song doesn't have to be musically complex to also be good.
Lost In Society combines energy with melody in the best way, using their DIY punk style to get where they want. The band has given me a lot of nostalgia listening, because of how often I used to listen to the Bouncing Souls and Green Day when I was younger. Having that same warm feeling when listening to good old fashioned punk is one of my favorites, making me glad to have when I listened to Modern Illusions.
Lost In Society also recently premiered their new video for “I Want To Know” exclusively with Alternative Press!
So, if you want to listen to a nicely put together album from a band trying to take on the world and make a name for themselves in the world of punk I would definitely give Modern Illusions a listen.
Favorite tracks: "Not Afraid," "Second Chances"
