Columbus Bring The Blink Vibes With New Banger, “Daffodil”
Emo punk heart-punchers Columbus have proved once again that Spring Forever – their debut full-length album, due August 26th via UNFD – is going to be the most 2004 album of 2016 with their latest jam, “Daffodil”.
Following on from previous singles “Replace Me” and “Raindrop” (massive NSFW warning on the latter’s music video – nothing sexual/violent, but it’ll make you ball your eyes out at your desk, which isn’t an optimal situation), “Daffodil” shines with a fiery outburst of classic Blink-182 vibes, a roaring chorus sticking to our eardrums like superglue, and some chewy riffs recalling only the biggest and bestest of our youth.
It’s hard not to see the new track making itself a mainstay in the live setlist, but we’ll find out for sure whether or not it does in October, when Columbus embark on their massive eight-date trip around the country with Horror My Friend and PLTS. If you haven’t already sorted out your tix (poor form, fam), you can suss out the details for that below!
