All Time Low are back, but they never really left. Not when you consider that the video for ‘Afterglow’, from their ‘Last Young Renegade’ album, was released just a month ago. The brand new single entitled ‘Everything Is Fine’ is a slight musical departure from the aforementioned long player, but it makes no mistake in All Time Low maintaining their status as the masters of the quintessential anthem.

The melodic pop punk hooks and the undeniable sing-along quality is full of nostalgia with that alt rock vibe that listeners have become accustomed to with this Baltimore quartet over the years. Ironically ‘Everything Is Fine’ is infectiously upbeat and catchy; ironic because, in a general sense, everything is not exactly fine. However, this in no way stops the track from being an instant classic.

In many ways the track could be a bonus track on the ‘Future Hearts’ album with its beautifully layered guitars and textured harmonies. This is combined with short and sharp phrasing throughout, complete with angst-laden lyrics; neatly anchored by staccato drums and guitars with the faintest hint of EDM thrown in for good measure. All Time Low have thus proven that they don’t know how to write a band song and ‘Everything Is Fine’ is just further proof of that.

My name is Maggie, but those who know me best call me Magz.

I credit my parents for always giving me a sound music knowledge from an early age.

For as long as I can remember I’ve wanted to be a music journalist…steal Molly Meldrum’s job my Mum always says.

I am an all around music nut.

My favourite genre would have to be pop rock but I love the prevalent indie sound that dictates a lot of Australian music nowadays, such as the likes of Angus & Julia Stone and Gotye.

I now pride myself on advocating Aussie indie artists and they are some of my most favourite artists in the whole world. I think there is something so special about the Aussie indie music scene.
