"Rather trophy-like results"

Although I am a creature of habit by nature, I'm extremely excited about the new sounds at THINGS THAT NEED TO BE FIXED. Since you can never put off your expectations, you actually have to try many songs two or three times until you realize how well they work. Roughly in the style of bands like "CHUNK! NO, CAPTAIN CHUNK" and "SINK THE SHIP", Things are not afraid to allow other inspirations and varied melodies, and thus achieve rather trophy-like, independent results. Anyone who likes pop-punk outside the clichés and lyrics with substance and a message has found their new favorite dealer here.

"Fresh and unspent"

This rather young band from Munich has dedicated itself to a crossover sound of metal / punk / core / rap / and even poppy sounds. The result on the record "NEVEREST" sounds fresh and unspent, you can hear it at all the corners and edges of the youthful carelessness of the group. All songs are quite different and there is a lot of emphasis on variety. While you may recognise idols of theirs like "A DAY TO REMEMBER“ here and there, they have to offer fans of the genre quite a lot.

"Accurately propulsive songwriting"

THINGS NEAT TO BE FIXED from Munich prove that Easycore is no longer a US domain. Because the fivepiece picks up on the style of bands like A DAY TO REMEMBER and blends it bluntly with their own Pop-Punk and Metal-Hardcore influences. The proven mix of melody and mosh also works in the Bavarian version, whereby in terms of sound quality hardly any international comparisons have to be shuned. The dozen tracks turn out to be a lively genre mix, which guarantees a constant movement through numerous breaks in tempo and rhythm.

"Creating their own world on NEVEREST"

In order give you an impression of the production: An international standard is easily reached - unbelievable how much pressure is generated and still the subtleties of the individual compositions are worked out. THINGS THAT NEED TO BE FIXED make use of a wealth of genres and create their own world on "NEVEREST". Since this is surprisingly and powerfully implemented and the young men act with a lot of fun, the album has become no plagiarism, but a master's thesis, which convinces with many references.

"Brings fans of different genres into a joint moshpit"

The nice thing about "NEVEREST" is that it brings fans of different genres into a joint moshpit! At the same time, THINGS THAT NEED TO BE FIXED do not chum up to anyone or give the impression that they are trying to please everyone. On the contrary, the guys have found their style and are not afraid to cross and merge musical boundaries, which at first glance do not really belong together. The result is an energetic record that should be quite a monster live.

"Every song surprises"

 SUEDDEUTSCHE 

THINGS THAT NEED TO BE FIXED from Munich mix their influences from punk, metalcore and rap to an ambitious form of pop-punk. Each of the tracks is characterized by gripping choruses, carried by the clean, mostly two-part vocals, catchy lead guitars and fast punk riffs. But as they additionally have rapped transitions, hard screams and massive breakdowns - every song surprises. And that's exactly how they distance themselves from pure feel-good-punk.

ENGLISH:
In the five heads of the members of Things That Need To Be Fixed from Munich, the pop-punk vibe is actually deeply anchored. Nevertheless, their sound is defined by a variety of influences from punk rock, metalcore and rap forming an ambitious form of pop punk, also known as Easycore. Although the typically cool, good-humored pop-punk riffs are a basic building block; Powerful breakdowns, scream vocals or rap parts diversify the genre. Thus things convince, as they call themselves in short, with a varied and in every song surprising sound. The band lives from their wealth of ideas and the harmonious readiness of each individual to engage with others. This mood of motivation is mirrored on their June 28 album NEVEREST - never to rest until the next common goal is reached. The self-confidence is clearly felt in the songs, because NEVEREST rips right away: the choruses are catchy and invite you to sing along while the lead guitars harmoniously complement the underlying beats. Fast punk riffs make sure that no circle pit fan is missing out on the live shows. However, it soon becomes clear that nobody here takes themselves too seriously. Cleverly used dissonance and lyrics with wit give the album that certain something and a strong recognition-value. Sure enough, some fans of guitar-heavy genres who like a breakdown, but who also love pop ballads, will discover a new favorite band in Things That Need To Be Fixed.

GERMAN:
In den fünf Köpfen der Mitglieder von Things That Need To Be Fixed aus München ist der Pop-Punk-Vibe eigentlich tief verankert. Dennoch definiert sich ihr Sound durch verschiedenste Einflüsse aus Punkrock, Metalcore und Rap zu einer ambitionierten Form des Pop-Punk, auch bekannt als Easycore. Hierbei sind die typisch fetzigen, gut gelaunten Riffs des Pop-Punk zwar ein Grundbaustein; wuchtige Breakdowns, Scream-Gesang oder auch gerappte Parts diversifizieren jedoch das Genre. So überzeugen Things, wie sie sich kurz nennen, mit einem abwechslungsreichen und in jedem Song überraschenden Sound.
Die Band lebt von ihrem Ideenreichtum und der harmonischen Bereitschaft jedes einzelnen, sich auf die anderen einzulassen. Diese von Motivation nur so strotzende Stimmung spiegelt sich auf ihrem am 28. Juni erschienenen Album NEVEREST wider – niemals zu ruhen, bis das nächste gemeinsame Ziel erreicht ist. Das Selbstbewusstsein ist in den Songs deutlich zu spüren, denn NEVEREST reißt sofort mit: die Refrains sind catchy und laden zum Mitsingen ein während die Lead-Gitarren die Beats perfekt ergänzen. Schnelle Punk-Riffs sorgen dafür, dass auch kein Circle-Pit-Fan bei den Live-Shows zu kurz kommt. Es wird jedoch bald klar, dass sich hier keiner selbst zu ernst nimmt. Geschickt eingesetzte Dissonanz und Lyrics mit Witz verleihen dem Album das gewisse Etwas und einen starken Wiedererkennungswert. Mit Sicherheit ist zu sagen, dass einige Fans gitarrenlastiger Genres, die gerne einen Breakdown vertragen, sich aber auch bei Pop-Balladen in den Armen liegen, in Things That Need To Be Fixed eine neue Lieblingsband entdecken werden.
