The pop-punk revival is back and better than ever. And Florida-based Magnolia Park has been leading this new era of the genre since their debut in 2019. Today, they are celebrating the release of not one, but two EPs entitled MoonEater and SoulEater, via Epitaph Records. Each release delves into different aspects of the band’s sound: the heavier, mosh-pit-inspiring side, and their synth-laced, pop-punk side. 

“Breathing,” the lead single off of MoonEater, features nothing,nowhere and showcases the group’s versatility by tapping into the arena-rock space. Vocalist Joshua Roberts’ soaring belt takes the song to a whole new level. Meanwhile, their new song “Blud Luv,” off of SoulEater, is infectiously danceable, layered with synths and vocals from keyboardist Vince Ernst. Reminiscent of the house music scene, the band shares the experience of bringing the track to life. 

“We wrote ‘Blud Luv’ in a hotel room on the A Day To Remember tour,” Roberts begins. “At first it was a basic pop punk style song, but when we brought it in the studio, Decode made a house beat to the vocals and it became a party anthem.” 

In addition to the new tracks, the band released a music video for “Blud Luv” that explores the neon nightlife of California. From the Santa Monica Pier and Pacific Park to a convenience store, the band members perform the song with blood-soaked vampire fangs. The fun-yet-edgy visual pairs perfectly with the track.
