The post-punk boom of the last few years has been one of my favorite umbrellas of genres to draw inspiration from and has given myself and other fans so many excellent releases. In writing today’s review of the single “Big Jawn” by Suntitle, it’s clear that their music could be on the rise towards other big names making similar music.
Suntitle released their debut, “The Loss Of”, in 2018. Since then, they’ve had quite a strong series of tours and have supported a ton of incredible bands, some of which even came to mind immediately when I first listened to “Big Jawn” – Movements and Knuckle Puck being what I had in mind. The repetition of the chorus in “Big Jawn” along with the drawn out vocals creates almost an ambient droning effect that allows you to feel as though you’re really sinking into the song. This effect is part a lot more strongly in some sections of the song and offer a vibe similar to that of some familiar shoegaze type sounds. The intense and emotional feel of the song is heavy all throughout and doesn’t ease up. Personally, I’ll be adding this song to some of my Spotify playlists that feature a lot of similar music.
Suntitle’s newest EP Pure Forever is set to be released on April 24, 2020 through Know Hope Records.

Due to the developing COVID-19 situation, I am not sure of when their next show will be or if their tour will still be happening, but you can keep up with any of the band’s announcements and releases through their Facebook https://www.facebook.com/suntitleband/ or Instagram @suntitleband. As always, thanks for reading. Stay safe, everyone!
