Waterparks - Entertainment

An ear for a chorus spins even the saltiest subject in pure sugar.

An ear for a chorus spins even the saltiest subject in pure sugar.

Label: Easy Life
Released: 26th January 2018
Rating: ★★★

In recent weeks, Waterparks frontman Awsten Knight has written about his difficulty with ‘Entertainment’, his band’s latest album. Lyrically poking at still open wounds, it’s that raw honesty that seals the three-piece’s ability to connect.

In a genre where new faces struggle to stand toe to toe with their increasingly aging legendary peers, Waterparks have broken through with ease. Every moment of awkward emotion is matched with day-glo, sing-it-back pop punk perfection. An ear for a chorus spins even the saltiest subject in pure sugar.

A juxtaposition that’s proven effective time and time again, ‘Entertainment’ may be more popcorn than a three course dinner, but it hits the spot every time. Dan Harrison
