Hitting that sweet spot between high energy and massive hooks, Gener8ion X from Breezy Supreme is an absolutely essential listen in a year rich in essential pop punk. The record comes hard out the gate with the seizmic “Terrorize Me” whose opening lyric “Dancing on this broken glass / Can I catch a fucking break?” is one for the ages.
Breezy Supreme’s got a way with immediately relatable heart-on-the-sleeve lyrics. The best tracks like “A Song For You” and “Thank You Catherine Obvious” look at the end of relationships with a self-effacing humor and fuck-it-all energy. 15 minutes after a bad breakup, Breezy’ll have you losing your shit in the moshpit.
That’s not to say it’s all just high octane effervescence. The album’s centerpiece is the hardcore anthem “Up the Punx” which lets Breezy Supreme push his voice to its extremes in all directions. Verses jump from a full-throated growl of community-scale rebellion to an octave up singalong coda. It’s a celebration of why pop punk has endured and still matters. With Gener8ion X, Breezy Supreme has truly cemented his status as one of the most exciting voices in this generation.
