REVIEW: Advocaat – Yikes

Advocaat – Yikes!

EP 2020 DIY

‘Yikes’ is the debut EP by Pennsylvania Punk Rock duo ‘Advocaat’ and it is out on Spotify, Bandcamp, Apple Music, and as a vinyl 7”. With 5 tracks clocking under 12 minutes the EP is over before you know it but I’m convinced that you will hit the repeat button just to hear that catchy pop-punk opening track “Neighborless’ again.

In my honest opinion the best part of the EP is formed by the strong opener ‘Neighborless’ and follower ‘Badly’, a very 50s rock and roll and doo-wop inspired track that would not be misplaced on the Grease soundtrack. In the middle you are treated with a track that is the most hardcore punk of them all ‘No Plans’. Not sure why this one is on the EP, it seems like its the ugly duck in the pond but it proofs that ‘Advocaat’ also can write a decent hardcore punk track. Both ‘Crimson Horror’ and closing ‘Leave’ are more than decent punk rock tunes. Overall ‘Yikes’ is a solid EP, nothing ground-breaking but with some fine tunes 7.5/10
