New Noise

The Pennock Tapes is an EP from the infectious KRANTZ. The southern tinged tracks drip with decadent melodies and exciting melodies. “Weedeater” is an upbeat banger of a tune that slides with harmonies. “Can’t Forget” is a summer fling wrapped into a two minute tune, repping a vivacious, anthemic burst of fun music.

New Noise Magazine is happy as can be to be bringing forth the track by track, in depth look at The Pennock Tapes by KRANTZ.

Weedeater – It all started with a powerful melody and chord progression that reminded me of the raunchy swagger of “The Faces.”  My old band member, good friend, and golf buddy Joel King (currently of the Wild Feathers) co-wrote this tune with me.  Lyrically, I am talking to someone, but I feel more like I am talking to myself, saying that you gotta take chances in if you want to get to where you want to be.

Until We Meet Again – This song is my personal fave off the EP.  I wrote it about a magical weekend I had with a special girl from another state.  When she left, I couldn’t get her off my mind, so what better way to get all that emotion out of ya than write a song.  It’s got a bit of a reggae vibe, but other elements such as strings add that unique ness.  The ending is an orgasm of sound that makes ya feel euphoric!

All Outta Love –  My friend Joel King and I co-wrote this song about a break up I was going through at the time. I was unhappy in a relationship, but hesitant to end it because we were in that “comfortable” stage. It’s sad because even though my girlfriend at the time hadn’t done anything wrong, sometimes you just fall out of love and want to be free. It’s a somber but catchy song, so it can’t bum you out toooo much!

Can’t Forget – This is my attempt to pen a 60’s pop song. It’s super catchy and has a 60’s mod vibe. I was bitter about a girl  I had  fallen for and wanted to try dating, but she wasn’t into it, so I made sure she knows  I’ll always be somewhere in the back of her mind.

Run Away With Me – Do you ever want to drop everything you’re doing, run off to a deserted island and forget the world?  I was definitely feeling it when I penned this number.  I wanted to take my girl by the hand and simply escape.  It’s a feel good summery song that gives off good vibes.
