"Give Up The Ghost" - Gravler

Favorite Tracks: Only Gets Better, Burial, Graves

Gravler are a pop punk band from Riverside, California. Their debut full-length album, titled "Give Up The Ghost," came out on June 22nd, 2017. The opener and title track is a great introduction to the album and one that really shows off the vocalist's vocal style. "Angst" is a very fast paced and seemingly angry song. The lyrics in here are very blunt, but that's something that makes the song as good as it is. "Red Sweater" sounds a bit different from the other songs on here. Although it is the shortest track, it kept me intrigued the whole time. Instrumentally, I love the guitar on "Wasted" and "Splintered Sunrise," and "Buried" is an interlude that shows a lot of emotion through each note being played on each instrument. "Home," "Sentiment" and "Give Up The Ghost" are some of the hardest hitting songs on here, while "Splintered Sunrise" and "Only Gets Better" are two softer tracks that slow things down a bit. "Graves" closes the album just as well as "Give Up The Ghost" opened it, if not better. The composition and lyrics are incredible and every member of the band put on an amazing performance.
