With their sophomore release, "For Better Days" from 2010, the band offered a mature and skilled package which was strongly portrayed in the lyrical content; frustration, bitterness and forfeiture were heavy lyrical themes throughout the release. And where "For Better Days" lets go "Late Nights" picks up...and then adds extra layers galore.
Ever so slowly THE 20BELOWS have developed from being a spit clean pop-punk outfit with all the dogmatics in check into a regular signature sounding alternative punk rock band. On "Late Nights" it quickly becomes obvious that the band has opened up, musically as well as lyrically. Dynamics have taken over and it suits the band nicely. Where the past 2 albums were more strict and uncompromising in their structure this album shows the full potential of the band. Variety is at large here as the most natural band progression thinkable.
The songs deal with angst and frustration but also hope, sentimentality and friendship. THE 20BELOWS haven't exactly gone soft and positive on the world. But then again, Rome wasn't build in one day and it becomes them very well indeed to be reflective and they've come a long way since the beginning.
10 years have passed, along with 2 albums, a small handful of 7"s, numerous compilations and 10+ European/US tours. Standing as probably the most explosive live band on the Danish scene with an undeniable flair for songwriting and an impeccable charm THE 20BELOWS will surely maintain their upward spiral and keep going for another 10 years. So...WE KEEP SINGING!
