NYC-based pop-punk outfit Shower Beers have recruited Australian punks SoSo for their nostalgic new single “One More Shot,” which has just been released
From their witty name to their high-energy sound, Shower Beers embodies the not-so-serious pop-punk spirit pioneered by acts such as blink-182 and New Found Glory. Fusing elements of easycore and ska on “One More Shot,” Shower Beers are setting the bar high for their highly anticipated sophomore EP Miracle on 34th and 3rd, on which “One More Shot” will be featured.
Shower Beers, the brainchild of Chris Diorio, is a brand new pop punk outfit based out of Murray Hill, NYC. Their mission: punch listeners in the mouth with catchy hooks and massive choruses. With the release of their debut, The Pregame Properly EP earlier this year, Shower Beers has quietly amassed a consistent following eager for their next offering. Good news! Fans won’t need to wait much longer, with the buildup to their sophomore EP, Miracle on 34th and 3rd, kickstarting this November with their new single “One More Shot.” Produced by Rob Freeman (Gym Class Heroes, Cobra Starship), this new project finds the band collaborating with exciting artists such as SoSo, We Demand Parachutes, and more. With a sound described by Idobi Radio as “an uppercut with brass knuckles,” Shower Beers is a band to kickstart a party, hit a heavy set with, or simply kick off your day with some energy.
The song kicks off with an infectious drum beat that immediately sets the tone for a feel-good experience. The production is polished, with a blend of incredible bass and electric guitar riffs right from the get-go. Shower Beers’ contribution to the vocals is notable, delivering a performance that is both confident and passionate.
SoSo’s presence adds an extra layer to the track, bringing a distinct style and flair to the verses. The chemistry between the two artists is evident, and their vocals add depth to the overall product. The lyrics of “One More Shot” are relatable and capture the essence of love and finding the right person, making it a perfect anthem for those looking to let loose and have a good time.
What sets this single apart is its ability to balance being radio-friendly and maintaining an authentic, indie feel. The infectious chorus is a standout element; you’ll find yourself singing along after just a few listens. “One More Shot” is a testament to the power of collaboration, showcasing the strengths of Shower Beers and SoSo as they come together to create a track that is both fun and memorable.
In conclusion, “One More Shot” is a song that deserves a spot on your playlist. Whether you’re gearing up for a night out or just in need of a musical pick-me-up, Shower Beers and SoSo deliver a track that will have you reaching for that metaphorical or literal “one more shot.” Cheers to a song that knows how to hit all the right notes!
