Flexing the fun, synth-rock vibe fans loved from them back in the day but with a more refined and mature sound than before. “Sweet Nostalgia” borders on pop-punk, incorporating heavy-hitting drum lines and funky, thrashing guitar riffs.
“Sweet Nostalgia” is damningly catchy from the start. The song immediately pulls you in with its high-octane pace and dynamic instrumentals.
