A polite punch to the left cheek is what this song is. Discordant hazy guitar lures you in, some wobbly bass distracts you on the right, and then skwadoosh, 10 seconds in, and the track blasts forth with a strong left hook.
James Mantis' "SUCKAPUNCH" is the perfect track to kick your legs around to — did someone say moshpit of 1 in the living room? Yes please! Undertones of surf rock, an abstract likeness to Bloc Party, and that modern-day bedroom pop sound born of lockdown all blend together to take the listener by surprise — just like a sucker punch.
"SUCKAPUNCH" is the first single released by James Mantis following his debut EP Jab Step Pop in 2021.
