Four albums into their career, Transit specialise in heartfelt, upbeat pop-punk, which flirts unabashedly with emo and indie influences. Young New England’s first single ‘Nothing Lasts Forever’ is impassioned and up-tempo, complete with the obligatory fuzzy guitars and explosive choruses that any self-respecting pop-punk band need to have down to a tee. Perfect music for yelling at the top of your lungs in a festival field, this band’s rousing lyrics and catchy hooks are only getting better with each album.
Hailing from Boston, Massachusetts, the fivesome formed in 2006, and cite their influences as Blink-182, Saves The Day, Death Cab For Cutie and Hot Water Music. This is unmissable when listening to their music, which is their own brand of angsty guitar-driven sounds, with strained, urgent vocals, gut-wrenching climaxes and all. Signed to Rise Records with fellow punk and alternative rock alumni Man Overboard, Piebald and Hot Water Music, Transit are in good company, and with a slot on the 2012 Warped Tour, their future looks bright.
