Review: Hungover Re-Release Wilt with Three New Songs

Hungover repurposed their Wilt EP from 2016 for their upcoming release of the same name. The new version of Wilt includes three new songs, which is just a taste of what they’ve been working on. The band plans to work on a full length release and do a lot of touring this year.

The re-release kicks off with “Three’s Company,” which is one of the new songs. It starts off the album on a good note. The vocals shine in the song and it was a good choice to kick things off with one of the new songs. “Around” is a song that switches up the pace with putting the acoustic guitar front and center. However, the full band comes in with about 50 seconds left in the song and swing back to end on a softer note.

“Exit – Stage Left” is a guitar-driven song that has more of a punk vibe to it at times. It’s also the second of the new songs. “Sleep Alone” is the third (and final) new song on the record, which is also the closing track. The song is about being put down by someone and letting go of them. The song acts as a freeing experience and with that, the records closes out on strong note.

The band’s talents and tastes are on full display with Wilt. Their range in sound shows that they have a lot of potential. I recommend giving this a listen. Even with it largely being a re-release, it’s worth listening to for those new songs. I can’t wait to hear what they release next.

You can order a copy of the record via Smartpunk Records and it’ll be out on March 30th.

Interview: Hungover

Hungover is currently working on getting some new music out for everyone to enjoy. The four-piece took some time to answer questions about the new music, working with Alan Reitman, and more. Check out the interview below!

Being from Central Florida, did you draw inspiration from that music scene when you first became a band?

Absolutely! When the band first started, the Orlando Pop-Punk Scene was alive and well! When there’s a show every weekend it’s hard not to get inspired to make music of your own.

What are some of your favorite bands from the area that you think everyone should know about?

Old Again, Capstan, Bad Year, False Narrative. The list goes on and on. The Central Florida scene is saturated with talent!

Now that you’re in the studio, what has your recording process been like? What’s it like working with Alan Reitman?

It’s been different than any other recording experience we’ve ever had. Alan is a dream to work with! He’s always willing to try new ideas and he really pushes us to be the best band we can be. We’re very fortunate to be working with someone who cares about music as much as he does.
