365 Days of Music: Day 257

For the final day of my grade nine rewind, a song by a local band that I grew to love at my first concert without parental supervisison, at the age of 13 and on the cusp of the grade nine year itself.  Interestingly enough, they opened for one of our previous artists in this cycle, Moist.

Treble Charger is portrayed as a punk-pop outfit, and many of their radio singles buy into that motif.  But many of their earlier singles, and the tracks that never reached airplay, were of a softer alt-rock ballad nature.  This track is one of them, and although it’s not my first choice (my favourite song of theirs, Trinity Bellwoods off the NC-17 disc, isn’t on YouTube), it’s gorgeous nonetheless, and befitting the atmosphere of high school.
