SPB exclusive: Notches - New Kinda Love

Notches - New Kinda Love

To end 2019, Scene Point Blank is featuring the brand new LP New Kinda Love by Notches.

It is the third record from the Seacoast, NH trio, following last year’s Almost Ruined Everything.

The new LP takes a poppy turn, but with jagged, rough, and dirty elements that cast a shadow over the sunny pop vibes: upbeat songs, but reflective of real life’s complexity, drawing some influence from The Lemonheads and Teenage Fanclub.

The record itself will be available January 10, 2020 from Salinas Records and Dead Broke Rekerds.
