Well, we can definitely help you there!
You should try the Mark Hoppus Remix of Neck Deep’s “Can’t Kick Up The Roots”!
After releasing the track as the first single off their second studio album “Life’s Not Out To Get You”
in March of last year and said album coming out about 3 months later, the band from Wrexham, UK
has come to join forces with pop punk veteran and blink-182 frontman Mark Hoppus.
Hoppus remixed 2 of their songs from “Life’s Not Out To Get You” less than 2 months ago, one of
them being “Can’t Kick Up The Roots”, and he did an awesome job.
The track that can only be described as a pop punk anthem deals with being proud of where you
come from and loving the place you grew up in (even if it’s not the best place to live in) because the
environment and the memories made in it form your personality to a great extent.
Under the hands of Mark Hoppus, who certainly made use of his years of experience with pop punk
as a genre, “Can’t Kick Up The Roots” goes from really great to absolutely amazing.
The slower pace and changed balance which is achieved by turning down the drums and putting
more focus on the guitar, does the song very well and we just can’t stop listening.
The band is very stoked about it as well, as their frontman Ben Barlow told us in an interview:
“We decided if he liked the songs enough to play around with them and he’s being creative, trying to
do something different and remix the songs, then that’s cool. Anything that he’s doing, musically, I
would be interested in, so it’s cool that he wanted to remix one of our songs.”
