Released via SmartPunk Records, ‘Postmortem’ is ten tracks taking you on a rollercoaster ride through 30-something angst.
The collection of ten songs masterfully create sing-alongs out of sadness through the band’s quirky, authentic, and self-aware approach to punk. From lost friendships to fleeting time and everything in between, Virginity encapsulates the feeling of riding life’s rollercoasters throughout their tracklist. Despite seeming heavy, the emotions are juxtaposed by their signature adult emo sound.
“Popmortem as an album is all about the songs, which may seem redundant but I mean that both literally and figuratively,” says Virginity’s singer Casey Crawford. “More than a few of the tracks are literally about writing songs and my frustrations (and joy) with that process, as well as some reflection on tropes within the songwriting arena.
“The actual process of putting these songs together was some of the most challenging creative work I’ve ever been a part of, but I feel like at the end of the day—regardless of what anyone else has to say about it—we accomplished what we were aiming for, which is a record with a collection of songs that we all really love and are just so fucking proud of.
Virginity say they play punk music written through a mature lens. Casey says he could mark across a map to symbolise the far-reaching influences where he began honing his voice. However, it’s in the visceral experiences of thirty-something crises where he fully discovered it. Only time and evolution could mix up their musical cocktail of accidental luck and punch-drunk honesty.
