Stream KennyHoopla’s New Mixtape Survivor’s Guilt
KennyHoopla is one of the many artists reviving and revamping pop-punk right now, and it definitely helps to have the ability to work alongside Travis Barker. His singles for this new mixtape, Survivor’s Guilt, were wildly successful; “estella//” and “hollywood sucks//,” which both bounce with the catchy, melodic blink-182 sound, have become alternative anthems with radio play.
The mixtape, though, is full of great surprises. The opener “silence is also an answer//” is an immersive entry, drenched in a loud, bombastic sound while his vocals start off as barely whispers. His lyrics capture a strong sense of longing: “I wonder what you’re thinking right now/ I wonder if you know you’re in my mind.” “inside of heaven’s mouth, there is a sweet tooth//” is another highlight, mostly because of its unexpected screams. It’s raw and intense, and the record could’ve use more moments like it. Hopefully the next one.
