MP3: Cola Wars – “Giving It Up”

Cola Wars
A comprehensive list of things I liked when I was 15:

1) Stone Cold Steve Austin
2) That scene in ‘Under Siege’ when Erika Eleniak pops out of the cake
3) Bodyjar

So you can guess how stoked I was (answer: really stoked) when I found out that ex-Bodyjar members Cam Baines and Shane Wakker were back together in an all-new band, Cola Wars.

Hailing from Melbourne, these guys are what pop-punk should sound like: catchy, melodic, with plenty of guitars. It’s dark too – that special sort of bleak you can sing/chant/kickflip along to. And for a bit of extra slickness, their debut album ‘Invader’ is produced by Kalju Tonuma, who’s basically Rick Rubin to the likes of The Living End, Temper Trap and Evermore. Boom!

For a taste, download this free mp3 of Cola Wars’ first single, “Giving It Up”.

You can also catch them when they tour (but don’t crowdsurf, because that’s how people break arms)…
