Transatlantic pop punks get nostalgic on new EP
A glimmer of hope, indeed: Creatively inspired by the days when emo wasn’t a dirty word and the rose tinted spirit of the late, great John Hughes’ celluloids, As It Is have spent 18 months moulding, melding and meddling with their craft, steadily building a reputation as one of the UK’s brightest new names via independent gigging and a self released debut (2013’s ‘Blenheim Place’).
“We play to our strength, which is self-deprecation at its most pathetic and miserable,” says Benjamin Biss, guitarist and co-vocalist of Brighton-via-Minneapolis quartet As It Is, of his band’s forthcoming new release, "This mind of mine", out March 17th.
