LOUDER NEWS: As It Is kick-start their new era with punchy new single 'IDGAF'
As It Is have successfully completed the most tricky of metamorphoses, evolving from pogoing pop punk darlings into gritty, slick rockers. Their ever-loyal fanbase have delighted in embarking upon this journey with them too, with their previous album, 2018's 'The Great Depression', receiving heralds of praise from both critics and fans alike for its candid, unfiltered analysis of a man struggling against his mental illness.
Now, however, As It Is may have been reduced in number to a solid three-piece, but their sound is bigger and more gut-punching than ever on their latest single 'IDGAF'. The melody is well-crafted and poppy, but the fierce nature of the chorus is sure to make this a firecracker of a track when it is woven into their already explosive live set. The additions of small sections of spoken word that are dashed across the melody continue a trend that began with their track 'No Way Out' from their sophomore record 'Okay.' - slipping out of a rippling melody to deliver the most resonant lines directly to the listener, thus engraving them forever on your memory.
One thing is for sure - if this track is indicative of what is to come from the Brighton-based trio, then this is yet another new era that fans should be very excited to get to experience!
