Toronto-based band Pup is more than the labels many attribute to it. Although it is pop-punk at its core, Pup's chops are gnarly and full of grit. The band enlivens a sometimes tired genre with structurally intricate songs wrapped with an unhinged ferocity. Its exuberant ideas are delivered with an enthusiasm that is infectious, leaving listeners begging for more. With four-part gang vocals incorporated whenever possible, the band bursts from the seams with an unparalleled energy.
