Pop punk outfit Settle Your Scores are back and have announced their signing to SharpTone Records. Additionally, the band will release their dynamic and utterly fun new album, Better Luck Tomorrow, on April 13th. Today, the band have presented their new song and accompanying video from the new record with “Keep Your Chin Up and Your Expectations Down”.
Settle Your Scores states: “This new track, ‘Keep Your Chin Up and Your Expectations Down,’ is about the wondrous joys of dating in the modern day and age, a culture built on instant gratification and short attention spans, boiled down to a shallow swiping system. This song was heavily inspired by an episode of ‘Master of None’, where the main character begins using a dating app and goes on a series of lackluster dates, filled with disappointment and awkward situations. It reminded me a lot of my own experiences and I knew right away that I wanted to turn that into a song.”
“When making the video, we wanted to convey those experiences in a compelling way in under three and a half minutes, so a speed dating scenario seemed like the obvious choice. Musically, the song is very reminiscent of early 2000s pop-punk. The high energy and hooky chorus made it a strong candidate for first single. The new album is pretty diverse compared to our previous material so we are very excited to see how people react.”
From the album BETTER LUCK TOMORROW https://fanlink.to/BetterLuckTomorrow Produced By: Johnny Franck https://www.settleyourscores.net/ Lyrics At this point I think we’re both aware that this is going nowhere. Every lull in the conversation is a pretty clear indication that we’re wrong. A different girl, a different name but the story stays the same.
