I think the Nancy, France residents Flood are no different. On this second ep, after 'Calm Before The Storm' in 2014, these guys come up with energetic punk rock in the vein of bands like Blink 182, Green Day and Sum 41. It's not very original but it sure is quality. There are some great tunes to be found here too, highlighting in the highly dynamic opener 'Don't Blink' and follower 'Hometown'.
'Who Are We Now' seems a bit heavier, perhaps including some thrash metal influences but with the same great vocal lines and melody. 'Sappy' makes you want to bang your head a little, before it turns into a pop punk tune that would perfectly fit on an Adam Sandler movie soundtrack. The album closes with 'This Night', another heavy tune, more of the same perhaps but well done.
So if you're looking for something renewing, you might want to keep looking, but then again, you might want to stop looking for it in the punk rock scene. What Flood brings is nothing new but it's damn fun. Hell, I've been shaking my ass when I listened to the album yesterday, twice. And believe me, my ass only shakes when the music is good. In fact, I hope these guys become the new big thing in the scene. They deserve it...
