Do you love songs that bring excitement and energy into your soul? If so, I have just the song! The American Indie pop trio, constructed of three lifelong brothers, have created a piece of music from a simple knock at their apartment door. The song is truly different from others as it is about the stage of life between childhood and adulthood when life is at a turning point. The lyrics, “I’m way too young to lie here forever, I’m way too old to try so whatever” shows how teens may feel when at the turning point of growing up. Along with some of their other hits such as “Weak”, which did exceptionally well in the charts, “BANG!” is known to be another one of their most successful singles. The introduction, especially, is worth noting, as it’s full of instruments including brass, percussion, and string adds an amazing touch. Overall, I would definitely recommend checking out this song as it deserves so much more recognition.
