Remo Drive’s sound is comparable to the punkier style of other contemporary emo bands like Modern Baseball or Joyce Manor, and their song, “Yer Killin’ Me,” blends a lively and optimistic form of punk with the brisk and airy tones of emo revival, while also incorporating elements from a range of genres.
“Yer Killin’ Me” is continuous and energetic, with 90s vibes, and varied stylistic tones that shift the song’s inherent tension. The song begins with the vibrancy and happy aggression of wholesome punk, before moving toward the warm nuance of contemporary indie and surf. The melancholic lyrics are presented with an optimistic energy that masks frustration and projects hopefulness. You feel a part of it – the music makes you feel welcomed. It’s good emo.
The song’s ending marks an accentuated change in ambience, and is more reminiscent of the lo-fi gloom pop sound of Teen Suicide. The raw and mellow atmosphere is cathartic. It relaxes you after the emotive and positive agitation of light-hearted punk.
