Tonight Alive – Breakdown

Jenna McDougall, the radiant bow of Australian five-piece Tonight Alive, has been waxing lyrical about how her songwriting is improving with age. Eager to flaunt this growth, we’ve been treated to a new single in the form of Breakdown. By ‘eck, she was right.

Breakdown is a ridiculously infectious, pop-punk big hitter, drawing subtle influences from the greats of old but dousing them in the indelible spirit and jarring weight of Tonight Alive’s charming, forward momentum.

A furious melding of instrumental joust provides a vibrant but dangerous underbelly for the soaring flight of the vocals. With attention-grabbing verses, hook-laden riffs and an unfaltering chorus, Breakdown is an incredible next step for the Australian pop-punks. Powerful enough to tear off ceilings, it would seem the sky’s the limit for Tonight Alive.
