I don't know about you but I get sad sometimes- I am human. And when I'm sad I like to listen to sad music, which does NOT help the fact that I'm sad, but it helps relating to someone.

Well, if you can relate on that level, than you are in need of some "sad pop." Yes, it is a thing and yes, it totally rocks!

EXNATIONS, a trio from Brooklyn, NY and Baltimore, MD, have mentioned that they consider themselves a 'sad' band, yet they are producing some lively synth pop sounds that make you want to dance with lyrics that address mental health.

Their EP Tiny Sound in the Dark came out August 24th and it is a BOP to put in the simplest and "hippest" of terms. The high energy songs make you want to dance while also relating with your sadness of the day making it easier to work through. I can't get enough of "Can't Get Hurt" and "Blank White."

For fans of: The 1975, Tessa Violet, HalfNoise, Paramore (After Laughter Era)

What Is Punk?


If you look at the Merriam-Webster definition of punk, you would find a motley of things. At Punk Junk Magazine, we believe in punk as a culture: a badass social interpretation built by those who are bold, electric, and unapologetically themselves. In our eyes, a punk is someone who fights for what they want regardless of obstacles or outside forces; they put their hearts and souls into their passions and make their dreams a reality. Being punk means being yourself, despite social norms and peer-pressure; punk is having a sense of awareness, respect for yourself and others, and an open mind. So to that, we say... why be a dreamer when you can be a PUNK!
