Single Review: Vukovi – Bouncy Castle

Posted by Natalie Lorimer

Vukovi - Bouncy Castle

he pop punk genre has often captured the attention of a sizeable slice of teenage music fans in Scotland.  Judging from the length of the queue outside Glasgow’s Cathouse on a Saturday night or the number of signatures on a petition demanding Paramore to return to Scotland after a nearly 4 year wait, the market remains strong.  It is here that Bouncy Castle, the latest single from Scottish four-piece Vukovi, scores one for the home team.

The single is as crafty as it is catchy.  A brilliant pop melody expertly combined with guitar parts that feature clever elements of tech-metal technique.  Lead singer Janine Shilstone shines; her voice comparable to PVRIS singer Lynn Gunn or even America’s new pop princess, Halsey.  The track’s components blend to create the collective energy essential for a proper pop punk banger.

With an audience eager and waiting for singles like Bouncy Castle, it is easy to imagine Vukovi claiming this track as their new encore anthem.
