Everyone knows about pop-punk, but what do you know about the genre’s lesser known cousin, punk-pop? Louisville, Kentucky, four-piece Before The Streetlights falls smack dab into that punk-pop category—the vibe of their new song, “Goodnight, Goodbye” is straight pop-rock, but the energy the band brings to it (not to mention the exciting vocal tradeoffs) are straight out of a punk show. It’s like a lighter version of Hit The Lights, or if you remember the mid-2000s at all, sonic brethren of SoCal’s Over It. Vocalist/bassist Josh Courtney comments:
“‘Goodnight, Goodbye’ is about where we are as a band as well as where we are in our lives. Music has and will always be a large part of our lives and this song highlights that. For the music video we wanted to have a cool ‘practice space’ feel to it. Our cinematographer, Vince Lundi, found us the garage and we dressed it up with things that have sentimental value to us. You can see the cut-out of the girl that was used in our ’18 After All’ music video, as well as a skateboard from Home Skate Shop which is a locally owned Louisville skate shop.”
