Pop-punk has been a bit hit and miss as a genre of late. For me, you'll never beat the Drive-Thru era, which in my opinion is better than anything that came from bands like Blink-182, Green Day and the like. A bold statement to make, but one I stand by. Talking of Drive-Thru, Hungary's Makeshift Promise have been compared to The Movielife so are already on the right path.
Their latest 7" was released in October 2014 by Footloose Records in collaboration with three other labels, Teenwolves Records from Austria and Hungarian duo Go Away Records and Realm Of Devla Records.
1. Black Eyes
2. You're Not As Good As I Thought
3. Tasty Revenge
4. Stapled Mouth
5. Parking Lot Serenade
Makeshift Promise reminds me of Strike Anywhere and Ignite a bit. 7” opener Black Eyes is catchy and full of clean pop-punk vox and hardcore screams. As with all good punk songs, Makeshift Promise play short/sharp numbers. They aren’t content with copying their American cousins either, with the vocals on You’re Not As Good As You Think not featuring the usual American affectations you’d expect from a pop-punk band in today's climate.
