"Not To Go", the 2021 single from Akron, Ohio pop-punkers, Detention, is a catchy and fun track that brings a few different elements under the punk rock umbrella to the table. While this track is pop-punk at heart, we also hear elements of ska, emo, and alternative rock blended in. Overall, we're left with a refreshing and brightening track that's easy to leave on repeat.

Hypnotic vocal work leads the way here while you're thrown into a journey of big and poppy hooks, spot-on pop-punk instrumentals, and on-point production. The band has been busy over the last couple of years. From what we can tell, they have a couple of EP's and a string of catchy singles in their discography. We're not sure what's next for Detention, but this is definitely a band that you're going to want to keep your eye on.

We added this single to our Underground Punk playlist on Spotify. You can stream the track below. Make sure to follow Detention to stay on top of what else they have going on. Enjoy!
