Album Review: Protect Your Heart - '[re]introduction'

Los Angeles pop-punk band Protect Your Heart release their high-energy debut LP, [re]introduction.



When it comes to a new generation of bands in the pop-punk genre, bands like Protect Your Heart are quickly making a prominent appearance in the scene with their debut LP release, [re]introduction.


"The main highlights that continue to move the needle of genre-building on this album are "Too Young To Die Alone" and "Fire Proof." Dynamically diverse in its instrumental and vocal presentation, Protect Your Heart show that they are capable of bringing new things to the table without jeopardizing their anthemic, catchy pop-punk soundscape."

[re]introduction begins with the introduction track, "Best Of Me." Pulsating with nostalgic pop-punk beatitude and a multi-range of raw vocal melodicism, "Best of Me" takes things to the next level for other great moments that appear on the record.

Other moments that continue to revel in their yesteryear energy yet still provide a present-day twist to their sound are "Never Gonna Leave You" and "Don't Count Me Out." Venturing into infectiously ariose vocal control that intermingles with classic punk-hued styling, Protect Your Heart shows off some of their best work, and the album isn't even complete yet.

Somewhat slower, more emotionally pained junctures, "Closer To You" and "Sorry" change up the temperature on the record, yet still retain the overall narrative, showing a calculated impassioned layering for the band that is certainly welcome.

The main highlights that continue to move the needle of genre-building on this album are "Too Young To Die Alone" and "Fire Proof." Dynamically diverse in its instrumental and vocal presentation, Protect Your Heart show that they are capable of bringing new things to the table without jeopardizing their anthemic, catchy pop-punk soundscape.

The album concludes with a clear-focused high-octane finale, "We Will Never Be Heroes." Ending the record with a culmination of what Protect Your heart does best with their mesmerizing hooks, strong guitar lines, and passionate lyrical delivery, [re]introduction ends poignantly.

[re]introduction is a great way forward for the California pop-punk band. Showing a generous array of sides to their instrumental delivery and vocal presence, Protect Your Heart certainly deserves a place and some attention in the ever-growing scene.
