TRACK FEATURE: SHOWER DAYS - "WALK AWAY"



Canada, (or as most people know it, America’s Hat) has been responsible for some of the best punk and pop-punk on the planet. Propagandi’s “How to Clean Everything” is the best punk album of the century and I will fight you if you disagree. The popular theory is that the music is so good because the only choices are joining a band or a curling team, so there you have it. Shower Days is the name of a solo artist from London, Ontario and also a classic song title from NOFX. Coincidence? I don’t know, they don’t pay me enough to do research. 


Either way, “Walk Away” is a really strong mid-tempo punk number with a high head-bobbing factor about a narcissist who just wants a therapist to tell him what he wants to hear, and the listener might feel like they know exactly the type of person being described. 


The vocals are strong pop-punk with a great guttural edge. It’s catchy, relatable, bouncy and with more lyrical intelligence than your average bear, (Another Canadian reference eh?) this one’s got some moxy and perhaps even a bit of chutzpah, and for that we salute you sir. It’s also very impressive that this is the work of just one musician. I visualize Prince but with a lot more denim in their wardrobe, and I’m backing it. That’s my last Canada joke, making fun of other countries is simply not what I’m aboot. And if we’re being honest, they have better healthcare and musicians than America anyway.
