WE REVIEW THE NEW ALBUM FROM RAGING CLUE

Raging Clue’s new album, “Call It Nostalgia”, is an interesting journey into the worlds of pop punk and emo music. The Nottingham-based band has been consistently delivering high-quality pop-punk releases since their debut in 2019 and this new album is no exception. For those who are not familiar with Raging Clue yet, they’re known for seamlessly infusing elements of classic melodic punk rock, skate punk, indie, and emo rock. They then turn some into a cohesive sound for a unique result, or in better words, their signature sound.

The album is composed of 12 tracks but don’t let the first track “Call It Nostalgia” fool you with its calm side, it is definitely a pop-punk album. We just need to wait for the second track to understand this – “Ruin” truly sets the tone with its powerful guitar riffs and energetic singing.

Another interesting track is “3210”. It delves into millennial heartbreak stories, singing the essence of being ‘left on read.’ The lyrics are relatable, exploring themes of self-doubt and rejection, something a lot of us (if not everyone) already experienced.

One of the standout tracks for me is “Ghost” for its production quality and the interesting juxtaposition of 2 voices at a time throughout the song for a more powerful effect.

The album ends with “Over”, a track that echoes the sentiments of its title. The repeated line from the beginning, “Well, I guess this is over” announces the end of this musical journey.

As the title perfectly implies, listening to the album is like a walk down the memory and nostalgia lanes. It is also a perfect example of Raging Clue’s skills for writing emotional lyrics out of experience with love, loss and depression.
