“Never Say Never” opens on discharges from gleaming jangly-lite guitars riding a flam-like snare. As the harmonics flow, the melody takes on pop-punk energy flavored with alt-country-lite hints, forging a beguiling, mesmerizing sonic soundscape, as if The Byrds fast-forwarded to 2020 and decided to play pop-punk.
A sliding-down-the-hill breakdown shifts the musical flow, followed by deliciously shimmering guitars infusing the tune with polished colors. Pugsley’s low-slung rasping voice injects the lyrics with feisty impudence.
With their jangly pop-punk sound, The 65’s pump out muscular refined dynamics fused with a contagious rhythm and tasty scratchy vocals." ~ Rawckus Magazine
