It's Not Working Out is the debut release from Oldfriends. If you've ever wondered what modern midwest pop punk would sound like coming from a group of young 20-something year-old dudes from southern California, this is it! Like most kids coming up in so cal, Oldfriends got baptized into punk rock by way of the early west coast classics. But where most bands of the area take the next step in their journey in the direction of a more bro-core, hard-core, thrash style, Oldfriends got detoured in the direction of the midwest pop punk stylings made awesome by bands like The Dopamines and The Copyrights. Though the midwest and even east coast might overflowing basements with bands playing out this style, it's a very rare find out here on the west coast. I was so stoked to hear the jams Oldfriends are making right here in my own little corner or the world. Now I feel super proud and fortunate to get to share them with the rest of you around the world.
