If you are a fan of punk music or rap music, this EP is certainly worth checking out. 


The first track off Dead Summer” is DONT THINK IT COULD GET MUCH BETTER.” This song goes into the intricacies of what it means to be in a relationship that is going through a rough patch. Listeners will instantly refer back to this track for its catchiness, particularly the Dont think it could get much better/Na na na na na na na” hook. Soaring guitars and drums combined with passionate vocals created a standout track. The second track is titled ALONE” and is noteworthy for the repetitiveness of its hook. It is also noteworthy for showing off the artists’ rap skills, whereas DONT THINK IT COULD GET MUCH BETTER” introduced their ability to create a high-quality punk song. The third song arguably has the most interesting title of all the songs: CANT BE GOD.” It takes a look at life and is sung over a more laid-back beat. Following this track is LOVE GAME,” where the narrator sings, We both know Im no hero,” demonstrating a sense of humility. Lastly, TEENAGE DIRTBAG” closes out the EP with the artists thinking about what they want to be, singing, I dont want to be a teenage dirtbag.”
