[POP PUNK] For years, Max Bemis has been writing tongue-in-cheek, self-deprecating pop-punk with Say Anything—songs simultaneously full of smile-inducing ticks and quirks on top of the heavy subject matter from self-loathing and suicide. The band's most recent effort, Hebrews, sees the group continue to turn the lens on themselves, only this time with breakneck orchestral flare. Album opener “John McClane” leads with a fluffy xylophone-inspired keyboard line and twinkles of harp. “Lost My Touch,” a slow, minimal ballad consisting of thoughtful keys and vocals, presents the first chance to take a deep breath on the album…until it devolves into Bemis’ grizzly shout. Then there’s “Boyd,” perhaps Say Anything's heaviest song to date. But despite the new, more orchestral sound, Say Anything maintains the same broken interior underneath.
