Settle Your Scores are back and with a dynamic and utterly fun new studio album titled ‘Better Luck Tomorrow’, which will be released on April 13th via SharpTone Records. Today the band are pleased to present their debut song and accompanying video from the new record. Check it out to get a good impression of what’s to come with their new, full-length offering!
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 lacklustre 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.”
Formed in late 2014, Settle Your Scores wasted little time in establishing a name for themselves in the Midwest USA music scene and the digital sonisphere at large. With a well-established regional US presence and an energetic, vibrant and bold live performance, the group unleashed their debut full-length record, ‘The Wilderness’, in January of 2016 and haven’t slowed down since. With nearly an hour of high-energy heavy pop punk under their belt, the outfit hit the road with the likes ofKnockout Kid and For The Win, making several appearances at festivals throughout the Midwest USA and beyond.
Settle Your Scores’ hard work was not for naught—as the group have remained busy working on their highly-anticipated sophomore record ‘Better Luck Tomorrow’ as well as penning a deal with SharpTone Records, providing them with a sprawling and diverse outlet through which to let loose the product of over two years of writing, touring and recording. With the doors to 2018 and beyond wide open, they are prepared to come out swinging, not stopping until they’re a well-established, effervescent force to be reckoned with on every continent.
