The aptly named Northern punk rock outfit Brawlers have gone and done a little album called ‘Romantic Errors Of Our Youth’, and, y’know what? It’s pretty bloody brilliant. Consisting of ten delight grungy pop-punk rock tracks that rarely wander over the 2 and a half minute mark, this release is as concise as it is distinctive.

Clear highlights are the upbeat, bass-heavy ‘Drink And Dial’, which is both a sweet track and an important warning to us all, as well as the somewhat Americanised ‘Windowmisser’. In fact, the whole album is brimming with great tracks, sounding like a throwback to the 2006 wanker rock era of the Arctic Monkeys, only this time around you won’t actually want to choke the vocalist.

‘Romantic Errors Of Our Youth’ is a faultless record. Yeah, I said it, big whoop. Wanna fight about it?! It’s catchy, to the point, accessible, well-written, likeable; it has it all and more. This is an essential album for the rocker in a jaunty mood, which we’ve all been in from time to time. So, grab a copy of this album, whack up the volume, and dance like a tosser for 25 care-free minutes.
