This Augusta, Georgia, fourpiece offer up a hearty dose of pop-punk by numbers. With catchy hooks aplenty and many a sing-along moment, these kids are currently treading the boards with Sum 41 – a possible tour match made in heaven. Veara’s sophomore album boasts maturity, without losing their punky charm. Produced by A Day To Remember frontman Jeremy McKinnon, there’s a definite influence bobbing around on the surface. This is a saccharine-fuelled, fast-paced affair, although no more than a few songs in and the repetition kicks in pretty hard. For those who can’t get enough of generic Yank pop-punk, step right up.
