Neon Trees vs. Blink-182 – Sound Off
The Utah quartet and their single ‘Everybody Talks’ are set to take on a new competitor today, and if they come out on top, they will be inducted into PopCrush’s Sound Off Hall of Fame. Today, the pop-rockers will take on Blink-182 and the band’s newest release ‘After Midnight.’ ‘Everybody Talks’ is an upbeat song with effervescent verses that make you want to groove along to the fast-paced guitar strumming and the smooth vocal stylings of Tyler Glenn. On the chorus, the song picks up with a heavier rock sound before it finishes strong with an infectious, repetitive hook. Challenging track ‘After Midnight’ is a classic Blink song, with longing, melancholy guitar chords and captivating, coming-of-age lyrics. Tom DeLonge and Mark Hoppus’ voices play off of one another perfectly, and, of course, Travis Barker’s astounding drum skills take the song to another level.
So, which song has snagged your vote? Cast your vote for either Neon Trees’ ‘Everybody Talks’ or Blink-182′s ‘After Midnight’ below. The polls will be open until 8AM EST on Jan. 24.
