On October 24, Came and Took It released their album titled “Resume.” Currently based out of Fort Collins, Colorado, Came and Took It combined their love for punk-rock, dual-vocals, catchy melodies, and aggressive rhythms to create “Resume,” a fresh twelve song album representing what pop-punk can be.
Previously in 2016, Came and Took It released a thirteen song length album called “Bait for the Buzzards.” Which, on their website is described as “ . . . the themes of addiction, mental illness, heartbreak, and hatred of hipsters in a 13-song punch to the face . . . ”
Came and Took It reminds me of an older, punk-rock band many of us would listen to at a younger age. It is refreshing to me that there are up and coming bands, like Came and Took It, that are trying to keep this vibe alive. I guarantee you that if you appreciate the 90’s pop-punk kings of Green Day, Weezer, and Sum 41, you will enjoy Came and Took It. Similarly, on Facebook, Came and Took It share that they enjoy and are constantly inspired by bands like The Lawrence Arms, The Flatliners, Dear Landlord, Alkaline Trio, and The Menzingers. If you would like a taste of these early pop-punk influences, I highly recommend listening to “Evergreen Palms,” the fourth track off of “Resume”.
Overall, Came and Took It emanates a fun, loving yet humor filled band who is guaranteed to take over the pop-punk world in a few years. After listening to “Resume,” I know that Came and Took It will meet their goal of spreading their infectious sounds to their new hometown and beyond.
If you happen to be in Colorado the next few days, make sure you check out their two upcoming shows!
